Training for the HSoJ Students on European Convention on Human Rights

On 10-11 August 2013, a Council of Europe expert, Marek Nowicki (Presiding Member of the Human Rights Advisory Panel of the United Nations Mission in Kosovo) conducted a training seminar for the Georgian High School of Justice (HSoJ) students in Kachreti. The training was on Articles 10 (Freedom of Expression) and 14 (Prohibition of discrimination) of the European Convention on Human Rights. Mr Nowicki taught the students how to incorporate the requirements of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in Georgian practice and discussed the latest case law of the Court that is especially relevant for the Georgian judiciary.

This Council of Europe activity was organised in the framework of Denmark’s Georgia Programme 2010-2013 “Promotion of Judicial Reform, Human and Minority Rights”.
