Given our relationship with AUCA specifically to conduct joint programming as well as joint degrees, the AUCA Law School ran a rather comprehensive Strategic Litigation course this summer in Russian, modeled on theStrategic Litigation course that we offer for the MA students. Leonard Hammer, the MA's Director of Development and Outreach, worked with Professor Kamila Mateeva of the AUCA to put together a dynamic program for Central Asin students on Strategic Litigation, with guest speakers from NGOs in Russia and Central Asia. The participating students were from Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan. The comments from both participating NGOs and the students were glowing, noting how the information on offer and the development of skills and tools to implement human rights were enlightening and practical.
We seek to conduct a similar course later this year and beginning of next year (2020-20201) on housing rights that will entail not only an overview of rights, but also practical avenues for implementing such rights through social mobilization and using various media tools.
