Repression & War

Dictators and repressive regimes often assume that they will enjoy impunity for persecuting opposition activists, brutally suppressing peaceful protests, and arresting, torturing or killing those who raise their voices against injustice. Similarly, many parties to armed conflicts do not fear legal consequences for targeting civilians or perpetrating sexualized violence against women. ECCHR seeks to put an end to such crimes by ensuring that those responsible are brought before national, regional or international courts.
