Specialists from the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine in the Chernihiv region visited Educational Human Rights House Chernihiv recently, to consider planning joint events in the field of human rights education.
Looking to raise the level of knowledge of the population about their rights in different spheres of life, the Ministry of Justice operates the programme “I have a right.” Specialists from the Ministry discussed possible cooperation with the House as part of this programme and sought more information about the direction and activities of the House.
As part of the visit, Serhiy Burov, executive director of Educational Human Rights House Chernihiv, informed about the work of the House.
He also held training on various cases of the European Court of Human Rights. Participants worked in small groups to analyse cases and explain what rights were violated, based on a collection of international human rights documents. Pavel Parkhomenko, judge of the Bahmach district court (Chernihiv region), was involved in the training as an expert.
