On October 13, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova delivered a public lecture to students of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA).

In her welcome speech, Tatiana Moskalkova stressed that the graduates of the Presidential Academy are famous throughout the country for their high level of preparation and ability to work hard and productively.

"It is possible that the future High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation is now sitting in this room, who someday, as I once, will assume a high responsibility to protect human rights in our country and throughout the world," said the High Commissioner.

During the lecture, the Federal Ombudsman told the students about the history, competence and characteristics of the institution of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, as well as the main activities of the State human rights defender and his role in modern Russia.

"We went through a serious path: human rights commissioners appeared in 85 constituent entities of the Russian Federation; the institution of the State human rights defender turned into a real, effective force. For two decades, it has been possible to restore the rights of thousands of Russian citizens, to make a significant contribution to improving legislation on human and civil rights and freedoms, and to strengthen Russia’s authority in the international stage", said Tatiana Moskalkova.

The High Commissioner also talked about the directions of her activity, paying special attention to the work with citizens' appeals. In addition, the issue of protecting the rights of students was not disregarded.

"Most often, complaints are received about the expulsion from universities, the closure of educational institutions and, as a result, the loss of educational facilities and convenient learning conditions, overestimated training costs, requests for assistance in transferring to budget places, complaints about living conditions in dormitories," — noted Tatiana Moskalkova.

At the end of the lecture, the students asked the Federal Ombudsman questions on actual topics. In particular, the young people were interested in the participation of the High Commissioner’s Office in the work on the renovation law, the law on regional Commissioners, as well as the international activities of the federal ombudsman.

The High Commissioner also signed a cooperation agreement with the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration. Tatiana Moskalkova stated that this step will allow setting the necessary vector of joint activity between the institution of the State human rights defender and one of the leading Russian universities, including increasing scientific competence in the field of human rights protection.
