On 5 September 2023, the Council of Europe in co-operation with the Constitutional Court organised a seminar for judges of the Court and lawyers on individual application as a legal remedy and its role in protecting human rights in Kazakhstan.
The seminar focused on the establishment of an individual complaint mechanism in Kazakhstan and the important role of the Constitutional Court in protecting citizens' rights. Participants had an opportunity to familiarise themselves with best practices and lessons learnt from Council of Europe member States with a well-established system of individual complaints by citizens to Constitutional Courts.
These legal professionals are now better equipped to navigate the individual application procedure.
The activity was organised in the framework of the action "HELP in Central Asia", within the Central Asia Rule of Law Programme 2020-2023, a joint initiative co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe.
