Chapter Summary

Petr Preclik, Dorothea Schönfeld and Dara Hallinan explain the existing problems of Russia in the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) and the Council of Europe (CoE) in terms of fundamental differences between Russian and European values, or suspicion/ contestation/challenge by the Russian government or nation of the human rights contained in the European Convention on Human Rights. At the moment, Russia indeed has numerous problems in the ECtHR. Every year, the ECtHR finds hundreds of violations and obliges the Russian government to pay millions of euros in compensation for violations of the Convention. This chapter highlights the judicial, procedural, civil and criminal law reforms that have introduced numerous necessary and important safeguards of human-rights protection and have extensively changed the Russian legal landscape. Russian legislators and courts are making use of the legal positions of the ECtHR and of principles of Strasbourg law.
