From 25-29 November a photography exhibition featuring images from the work of the European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC) will be on display in The Grove atrium, as part of a series of events marking the centre's 10 year anniversary.
Photos include images from Chechnya and the North Caucasus, Georgia and Nagorno-Karabakh, with stories about the most significant and shocking cases of human rights violations which the centre has challenged at the European Court of Human Rights.
The photos are available to buy through silent auction (more information will be available at the exhibition). The money raised will go towards the work of the centre and for the protection of human rights in the former Soviet Union.
The European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC) is based within the School of Law at Middlesex University. It has been working for the protection of human rights in the former Soviet Union since 2003 and has taken over 300 cases, mainly against Russia, to the European Court of Human Rights. This has led to judgments in 98 cases (so far) including the first six judgments ever to be secured against Russia for gross violations in Chechnya. In total more than €6,500,000 have been awarded to the applicants in moral damages.
