10 years ago we set up ECCHR to challenge injustice through legal action. Since then our work has shown how legal means can help to curb human rights violations. Today ECCHR works on over 40 cases around the world, seeking to ensure that powerful perpetrators are held accountable for torture, repression, exploitation and violent border practices.
Our 2017 annual report and special 10 year anniversary publication document the cases we litigate and the partners and communities we work with, as well as the legal strategies and policy aims underpinning our casework.
We recently established the Institute for Legal Intervention to increase the impact of our work beyond the individual cases. The Institute aims to contribute to global legal, political and societal debates, expand the education and further training of young lawyers, and strengthen interdisciplinary dialogue.
