defending rights and civil liberties

At RIS, we consider rights and civil liberties can also be defended through legal actions before domestic and international courts as well as international mechanisms. To this end, our activities include strategic litigation before national courts, in Spain and other countries, as well as supranational courts such as the European Court of Human Rights. These actions include the presentation of cases before United Nations committees.

In RIS we consider important to follow-up relevant judicial proceedings even if we do not participate in them directly. You can find useful documents, decisions and information regarding some of these cases:
