Eastern Partnership & Russia

The history of the International Society for Human Rights is closely tied to that of the Soviet Union. After its fall in 1991, ISHR sections formed in many countries of the former USSR, including all six countries of the Eastern Partnership (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine) as well as in Russia. Currently, exciting joint projects regarding freedom of information and media and strengthening civil society actors are being carried out in the region by the sections, iniated by the ISHR in Germany, with support from the German Federal Foreign Office.

Does Corona turn politics into satire? Not at all, even if it sounds like it. PhD – Carmen Krusch, head of the Eastern Europe section of the International Society for Human Rights, takes a stand on developments and dangers that require our full attention, with a serious wink.

The Right to a Fair Trial in Ukraine

In 2019, the ISHR continued to monitor observation of the right to a fair trial in Ukraine. Since July, this work has been carried out as part of the project “Strengthening the rule of law in Ukraine” of the Ministry of Economic Development and Cooperation of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Working to Strengthen the Rule of Law in the Ukraine

The Ukrainian Section of the ISHR is working in the field of observance of the right to a fair trial in Ukraine. We started this work in 2017, and since then we have been constantly improving on the quality and quantity of the monitoring.


This year exactly marks 30 years since I’ve been in Soviet Moscow. Although I have visited there dozens of times since then, the comparison always remains in my head. – By Dr. rer. pol. C. Krusch
