Erkin Gadir, who is a lecturer at the Baku State University also presented a report.
During an interview with Trend Special Correspondent to Tbilisi, the Georgian Deputy Justice Minister pointed out that holding such conferences furthers harmonizes the national legislation regarding human rights protection with the EU legislation.
Representatives of the State bodies, scientists from Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Georgia are participating in the Conference.
Presenting his report during the Conference, the Lecturer of the Baku State University stated that international standards very frequently do not satisfy the national legislation. However, sometimes there are nuances. For example, in Azerbaijan there is an existing law reflecting the international norm, though the country has not authorised it. The matter concerns two protocols attached to four conventions. Azerbaijan has ratified the conventions, but has not done the protocols, though norms they content are laid in our laws, the lecturer said.
