The European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC) joined Middlesex University in 2013 and is part of the School of Law.
Our centre assists non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and lawyers in Russia, the South Caucasus and Ukraine in taking cases to the European Court of Human Rights. Our mission is to support the long-term sustainability of the local human rights communities by strengthening their capacity to litigate effectively and strategically.
We also advocate for the effective implementation of European Court judgments, in order to bring about positive changes on the ground to laws, policy and practice. We bring international attention to the human rights situation in the countries where we work and raise awareness of the European Court system.
We run an internship programme in our office at Middlesex University for students, post-graduates and professionals with relevant skills who want to gain experience of working within an international non-governmental organisation.
