On 7 June 2016 the BEARR trust 25th Anniversary Lecture will feature Professor Bill Bowring speaking on “25 years on: the Rule of Law in Russia and the republics”

From the BEARR Trust website

The BEARR Trust is marking its 25th Anniversary by looking at key developments in our region over that period, and prospects for the future. This year’s Annual Lecture, kindly hosted once again by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), One Exchange Square, London EC2A 2JN, will be at 6pm on 7 June 2016.

Professor Bill Bowring is a leading expert on our region, teaches international law and human rights at Birkbeck College, London, and is a practising barrister. His latest book is Law, Rights and Ideology in Russia: Landmarks in the Destiny of a Great Power (Routledge 2013), of which copies will be available at the lecture. (For more about Professor Bowring, see below.)

The event will be under the Chatham House rule. The lecture will be followed by a reception, which will allow for further discussion and networking with others with an interest in the field.

The BEARR Trust is a UK-based organisation set up to help children and other vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in Russia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the South Caucasus. We believe the best way to do this is to help small NGOs in the region to build knowledge, know-how, skills and contacts including with those doing similar work in the UK.

The lecture is free, and all are welcome. However, this is The BEARR Trust’s main fund-raising event of the year, and guests are invited to make an advance donation of £25 per person. All proceeds will go towards BEARR’s work to support health and welfare and to strengthen civil society through our Small Grants Scheme.

All names must be given in advance for security reasons, so please fill in the booking form below and return it as soon as possible, and at the latest by 1 June. For Booking form click here.
