Environment and Human Rights: Paths to Strengthening Environmental Litigation in Serbia

The Council of Europe Office in Belgrade and the Heinrich Böll Foundation’s Office in Belgrade invite you to take part in a discussion on human rights and environmental litigation in Serbia that takes place in the context of the 70th anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights. While the right to a healthy environment is not explicitly stated in the European Convention on Human Rights, to this date, the European Court of Human Rights has decided on 300 cases related to environmental protection. That said, none of those cases has been filed by a Serbian citizen. This discussion will attempt to uncover the underlying reasons and to explore the path of human rights protection mechanisms as a possible way to strengthen the standing of environmental protection cases in Serbian courts.
