The human rights situation in the Russian Federation: Building a bridge with civil society as human rights violations intensify
The Russian Federation’s departure from the Council of Europe, loss of access to the European Court of Human Rights for its citizens, diplomatic isolation from those States which have been supportive of human rights and civil society in Russia, and increasingly repressive policies make it increasingly difficult for Russian human rights defenders, activists, and civil society organisations to hold the authorities to account through international mechanisms and engage with the international community. And, there is no end in sight. Without robust and genuine international support, and a monitoring mechanism, independent Russian civil society organisations will continue to be left isolated and dangerously exposed.

The panel will focus on the following key questions:

• What are the most pressing human rights issues in Russia?
• What are the effects of increasingly repressive legislation and other policies and practices targeting civil society?
• What role does the Human Rights Council have in addressing the human rights situation?

Hosted by Amnesty International, International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), Human Rights House Foundation (HRHF), Human Rights Watch, International Bar Association Human Rights Institute (IBAHR), International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), and International Service for Human Rights (ISHR)
