The Committee for Civil Rights is a Moscow-based non-profit working to improve access to justice and the effectiveness of the judicial system. The proposed project will work to improve both the transparency of Russian courts and the delivery of justice. The project would monitor courts in four Russian regions, provide legal support in selected cases, litigating on important legal issues before the higher courts, including the Constitutional Court, and hold a series of roundtables on justice issues to support the development of informed debate on justice issues. Foundation dollars would pay for salaries, legal support, printing, costs and project equipment.
