Newsletter No 52 (September 2018)

The summer break has come to an end, so we would like to use this newsletter to review some of our cases and to highlight several upcoming ECCHR events: in August, a delegation from ECCHR travelled to Namibia to support the Ovaherero and Nama struggle against (post-)colonial injustice. French legal authorities reached a historic decision in the Lafarge/Syria case at the end of July, and since then have been investigating the aiding and abetting of crimes against humanity. The proceedings looking into the practice of deadly push-backs from February 2014 at the Spanish-Moroccan border have been taken up again. News in the Education Program: the 2018 Kreuzberger Kinderstiftung scholarships have been awarded.
