    The negative perception caused by unequal treatment at the workplace undermines the recruitment of labor migrants in sectors where there is a real demand in order to keep upright production.

  • Students work on an intervention before the European Court of Human Rights on over-blocking of legitimate websites 02 Oct 2017News Students work on an intervention before the European Court of Human Rights on over-blocking of legitimate websites
    At the moment, 97% of all blocked Internet content in Russia is blocked without an adequate legal justification, as a 'side-effect' of the local website blocking law. In late summer, TILT (The Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society) students worked together with an NGO, European Information Society Institute (EISi), to convince the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) that this situation seriously violates freedom of expression of Russian citizens. Soon after, they filled a third-party intervention.
