Research |

We carry out research on key human rights issues and strive to bridge the gap between practitioners, judicial authorities and policy makers on national and international human rights standards. To do this, we conduct research on critical legal issues related to state of emergency measures, including the effectiveness of remedies, derogation regimes, restriction of human rights in the fight against terrorism, rule of law standards and the independence of the judiciary. We also circulate relevant case-law among practitioners, and provide them with reports, press releases and opinions of international and regional human rights monitoring mechanisms to assist their litigation activities.
