The project promotes social inclusion and equality of foreign inmates by fostering Nordic-Russian cooperation between authorities, universities and NGOs. Social inclusion is aimed at ensuring that all groups of people within a society feel valuable and important. It is a process of improving the conditions for participation in society and especially for people in disadvantaged situations.
The main idea of the project is to study current situation with human rights violation against foreign inmates in Nordic countries and NW Russia (St-Petersburg and Republic of Karelia) and to develop tools for their protection, social inclusion and prevention of discrimination by strengthening civil society and cooperation between NGOs and local authorities.
The project is funded by the Nordic Council of Minister's programme Nordic-Russian Co-op on Civil Society & Human Rights for the period of 1.11.2020 - 30.6.2022.
