Proposal

Idea pitch

Enthusiastic and supportive people can become stronger in legal protection of other people from iniquity of state and corporations, if they combine their judicial documents and judicial cases within a single IT platform for protection of human rights. You don’t have enough knowledge, experience and ideas for protecting your rights - create a case, attach documents and ask for help.

Why does Europe need your idea?

We believe that legal defense of human rights in civil society nowadays is very disunited within narrow groups of interests and separate countries. We rarely know about legal success in socially significant case in neighboring city and moreover in neighboring country. We may not remember about some cases in 3-5 years, especially who and how won the similar litigation against state or corporation. The result is that these successful cases do not lead to nationwide or european trends in justice.

What is your impact?

To organize an informational platform for dealing with legal cases, for registration of documents and legally valid events in a single data model for different countries.To give interested people possibility to search and see not only decisions of courts, but also how these decisions have appeared; to see texts of lawsuits, objections, petitions, etc.To classify cases in one data model, to give users possibility to learn the court practiсes in cases of any country they are interested in.

How do you get there?

We have a complete IT solution for instantaneous use. We are ready to provide you with an open program code during realization of the project as well as all rights on its usage created during project realization by unprofitable public organization. In the course of the project it’s necessary to improve (translation of interfaces and forming of manuals) software for use in approximately 40 countries (EU countries and FSU states), to prepare training documents, to find first users of the system from public groups that practice protection of human rights and legal clinics of legal faculties.
