Ella Pamfilova met with officials of regional human rights’ offices

28 October 2014

On 28 October 2014, in Moscow, Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia Ella Pamfilova held a meeting with the officials from regional human rights commissioners’ offices in the territorial entities of the Russian Federation.

The meeting closed the advanced training courses for regional commissioners’ offices employees.

The issues discussed included the cooperation of the regional commissioners with legislative and judicial authorities, development of civil legal awareness and support of human rights activities, enhancement of coordination between the federal and regional commissioners for human rights.

Among major priorities listed by Ms Pamfilova there is a need to establish new standards in handling applications. “My priority in work is an ordinary person. It is important to ensure that everyone coming to us is not disappointed with indifference, lack of attention, or formal attitude,” Ms Pamfilova said.

A special attention was paid to the problem of legal education in Russia. At present, according to Ms Pamfilova, there is a need to implement special federal programme which would provide for systematic training measures not only in educational establishments, but also in the sphere of media, culture, and public conscience.

In this view, Ella Pamfilova has pointed to the complicated situation with the human rights movements in the regions. She defined a strategic task to facilitate the self-management, first of all, of the youth to create and develop an up-to-date civilised human rights movement.

The Commissioner assured the regional offices’ representatives that she intends to pay the highest possible attention to the consolidation of the regional commissioners’ status, and to develop systematic training of their offices’ employees.
