Georgia's experience in protecting the rights of vulnerable groups will help improve Kazakhstan's legislation
On June 29, 2018 at 14:00 in the The Plaza Hotel Almaty (Kozhamkulova 215/120, the corner of Karasai Batyr street), there will be a meeting of the Coordination Council, which will announce the interim results of the project on "Improving the legal aid system for vulnerable groups in Kazakhstan," implemented by the Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia with the support of the European Union.
The project aims to improve mechanisms and practices for protecting the rights of vulnerable groups, particularly if they are involved in the criminal and civil justice system through improving quality and access to free legal aid provided by the state.
The session will be attended by the Secretary of the Commission on Human Rights under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, representatives of the National Center for Human Rights of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Republican Bar Association, justice projects funded by the EU (EUCJ, Union of Crisis Centers), human rights experts, and the delegation of the EU Delegation to Kazakhstan.
As part of the project, a study-tour to Georgia was held in early June to study and analyze international experience in providing legal assistance to vulnerable groups. Human rights activists who took part in the trip will share the main results of acquaintance with the experience of neighbors, knowledge of the mechanism of work and charging of lawyers and other issues. Recommendations based on positive Georgian practice will be used to improve the Kazakhstani model of the State Tax Administration.
