Five projects confirmed for the academic year 2022-2023

In the year 2022-2023 we are happy to announce five projects, with important Dutch and European organisations:

· Dutch section of the International Commission of Jurists (NJCM): Dublin procedure and its implications for unaccompanied minor refugee children within Europe. Research on rights under EU law, ECHR, EU Charter and CRC, interstate principle of trust and fear of return.

· European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC): A comparative assessment UN case law, and judgments of the ECtHR, on specific issues, to help in litigation responses to the situation in EHRAC’s target region, in the light of Russia's expulsion from the Council of Europe and the impact of the war in Ukraine.

· Public Interest Litigation Project (of NJCM): a systematic analysis of a great number of (Dutch language) files obtained through the freedom of information act in light of rights of the child and youth and the right to a fair trial (in cooperation with international NGO Fair Trials). Non-Dutch speakers could assist with the international and European law framework on these issues.

· Justice Initiatives Lab: working with human-centred design, in 4-5 Lab sessions, gathering data about specific justiciable problems so as to move forward with a design for resolution (evidence, ideation, prototyping, design, evaluation) to improve access to justice.

· Open Society Justice Initiative: research looking into how and whether compensation awards in ECtHR cases against Russia can be enforced in domestic criminal procedures in countries where Russian sovereign assets have been frozen, namely Germany and France. The study will involve a research into enforcement of foreign judgements in these jurisdictions and into the relevant ECtHR rules and procedures.
