EWMI/PROLoG Supports Advanced Human Rights Training for Judicial Assistants

11 August 2017 Nino Khaindrava, Lawyer at ECtHR talks about recent communicated cases concerning Georgia

In 2017, EWMI/PROLoG implemented a human rights training program for judicial assistants at Tbilisi City Court and the Supreme Court of Georgia. The program increased the capacities of judicial assistants in human rights so they can better research human rights standards and apply them in draft judicial decisions. Sixty judicial assistants participated in the series of trainings on different human rights standards and the case law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).

On July 27-28 and August 1-2, EWMI/PROLoG, in partnership with the Office of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in South Caucasus (UN OHCHR), organized two advanced trainings for a selected group of judicial assistants that showed better knowledge and research skills in human rights during the earlier group work and written assignments. Five judicial assistants from the Tbilisi City Court and 10 judicial assistants from the Supreme Court attended the advanced trainings. Nino Khaindrava, a Georgian lawyer at the ECtHR, and Besarion Bokashvili of UN OHCHR conducted both trainings, which covered the most relevant issues for judicial assistants, including ECtHR decisions against Georgia, the most recent case law and Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights (Right to a Fair Trial).
