Russia and the European Human Rights System

CREECA Fall Lecture Series

Event Details

Thursday, September 19, 2019
4-5:15 p.m.
Russia eagerly ratified the European Convention on Human Rights in 1998. Now, the Chairman of its Constitutional Court expresses resentment at the subordination he claims it works on Russian sovereignty. Although other ratifying parties have been delinquent in meeting their legal obligations under it, only Russia has taken defiant steps. This raises both theoretical and practical questions about the future of this extraordinarily successful human rights system, and Russia’s future in it.
