    GET #39 - Russia's Expulsion from the Council of Europe - 'No Longer a Member of This Organisation'

    The invasion in Ukraine, which is a fundamental violation of international law, ignited a clear reaction from the Council of Europe. On March 16, 2022, the Committee of Ministers took a firm stance by deciding on the withdrawal of the Russian Federation from the Council of Europe. Questions surrounding the withdrawal have been the subject of many scholarly debates, which is what we're discussing in this episode. Diego Sanchez, our deputy-editor-in-chief and Mikhail Zakharov, one of our writers, discuss the resolution of the European Court of Human Rights on the 22nd of March, the possibility of being a Member of the Council but remaining subject to the jurisdiction of the Court and the Court's announcement on accepting applications on human rights violations. Enjoy! 

    This episode was produced and hosted by Asimina Melissi. Research and content by Diego Sanchez and Mikhail Zakharov. Sound engineering by Jose Ignacio Oliveros.
