OSJI-EIN Join Events, Strasbourg

Effie Fokas was recently invited to participate in the joint events organised by the Open Society Justice Initiative (OSJI) and the European Implementation Network (EIN) in Strasbourg. On 29 November she attended the Litigators’ meeting for ECHR Litigators and EIN members, followed by a roundtable discussion at the European Court of Human Rights. The next day the participants were invited to a meeting between the Court and representatives of Non-Governmental Organisations and international Bar Associations, with the aim of discussing practical aspects of bringing cases before the Court and general problems encountered in the context of Court proceedings, as well as to exchange views on some of the challenges facing the Convention system.

On 1 December Effie Fokas attended the EIN Annual General Meeting and Network Event, where she had the opportunity to learn more about how NGOs mobilize around the Court’s case law. Further information is available here.
