Appointed victims' rights expert by OSCE

I am pleased to share that I have been appointed to serve as expert on victims' rights for the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR).


Following the protests that took place across Kazakhstan in January 2022 (known locally as 'Bloody January'), ODIHR has monitored, in co-operation with Kazakhstan's Supreme Court, trials to assess their conduct and contribute to their overall transparency and fairness.


I will contribute to this mission by authoring a report on how the state has compensated the victims of the January 2022 events for their suffering and how the rights of witnesses are respected during trials. More information about this ODIHR mission, you can find here.
