Global Human Rights Sanctions Regime Trainings and Applications

We have organized trainings for lawyers from all around the world on how to prepare and submit petitions to the FCO within the framework of the Global Human Rights Sanctions Regime. This was done in response to a call by the Secretary of State for NGO involvement for better application of the new regime. We have also supported a submission against perpetrators of grave human rights violations from Turkey. Our support took the form of organizing a joint letter undersigned by 53 members of the Parliament and letters send to MPs by their constituents asking for a just application of the regime. Besides the general public, beneficiaries of these activities included human rights organizations and acting and aspiring lawyers on human rights law.
