In recent years, there has been a crackdown on attorneys in Azerbaijan. Human rights lawyers and lawyers who are seen as opposing the current administration in Azerbaijan have been persecuted. Attorneys have been prevented from practicing and, in some instances, have been incarcerated or forced to leave the country. Our panel of distinguished speakers will discuss the current situation in Azerbaijan and the actions taken by lawyers and activists in response. 

Panelists:Dr. Leila Alieva, Russian and East European Studies affiliate, Oxford School of Global and Area Studies
Leyla Madatli, Legal Consultant, International Commission of Jurists
Dr. Farhad Mehdiyev, Director at Impulse Survey Center and Partner and Legal Consultant at Arbitrage Consulting
