Project aims

The Project goal is to organize the international hybrid (partly online) conference to reflect and boost the impact of the ECtHR Drėlingas case on national and regional academic as well as political level. This type of genocide research is a necessary basis for ensuring justice with the aim of preventing the recurrence of similar inhumane crimes in the future and preventing impunity.

Main activities and venues

The international conference will be held partly online (hybrid event, meaning that, depending on the COVID situation, part of the speakers and audience could be online and part of them-live in the studio at MRU venue).

The hybrid conference will be held at Mykolas Romeris University. The studio and all needed technical support is available.

Direct and indirect target group

Direct: academics and students from legal, history, political fields in the region and globally, those working in the judiciary and policy makers in the region and beyond – approximately 50 persons in the studio at MRU (it depends on Covid restrictions, the number could be higher if the restrictions will be lifted) also about 1000 persons online (live stream during the event via MRU and Partners Facebook accounts).

Indirect: victims of Soviet regime and their relatives, victims of genocide, national and international judiciary and non-governmental organizations dealing with genocide and post-genocide issues – about 2000 persons online (live stream during the event via MRU and Partners Facebook accounts).
