Intercultural Human Rights Law Review

First Page



This article will provide an overview of human rights violations in Transnistria, with an emphasis on the cases brought before the European Court of Human Rights. The role of human rights NGOs (such as Promo-LEX), reform-minded civil society, and the influence of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Moldova in the PMR will be explored. The current situation will be analyzed in the context of the resumption of the 5+2 negotiation, as well as the major judicial reform effort (the Strategy for Justice Sector Reform, 2011-2015) that the governing coalition in Moldova, formerly the "Alliance for European Integration" and now the "Pro- European Coalition," is undertaking with the support of the international community.
