Freedom of Peaceful Assemblies: Notifying Authorities


In the case of “Lashmankin and Others v. Russia”, the European Court of Human Rights combined 15 similar complaints submitted by Russian citizens. They were denied the right to peaceful assembly – protest on the streets of their cities and settlements.

The right to peaceful assembly is guaranteed in numerous international human rights instruments. In particular, article 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights states that “Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and to freedom of association with others”. The European Court of Human Rights oversees state compliance with the convention.
