What happens at BIM in summer? We are planning two Human Rights Talks on Hate Speech (Keynote: Fernand de Varennes, UN Special Rapporteur on Minority Issues) and on Covid-19 & Human Rights (Keynote: Dunja Mijatović, Europe Commissioner for Human Rights) and are working on new, exciting research projects.

On 30 June 2020 the European Union Delegation to Azerbaijan announced that Lithuanian institutions together with Austrian colleagues were awarded the contract to implement EU Twinning Project "Strengthening the capacity of State bodies and local level referral mechanisms to provide safety and support to victims of domestic violence in Azerbaijan". Considering the restrictions on movement caused by COVID-19 pandemic the start of the project is foreseen from 1 September 2020.

The Coronavirus pandemic has an immense impact on the lives of millions of individuals; equally and especially on persons in detention facilities.

Under the leadership of the Österreichische Liga für Menschenrechte (Austrian League for Human Rights), 250 civil society organisations have written a supplementary report to the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the UN Human Rights Council. The result shows a clear need for action: 150 complaints about the human rights situation were identified.
