Human Rights and the War in Chechnya

Many reports from Russian and international organizations describe
the catastrophic human rights situation in Chechnya, but our own survey
indicates that the war is used by the authorities as a springboard
and a pretext to restrict civil liberties in Russia as a whole. An analysis
of Russian public opinion about Chechnya – on the basis of opinion
polls and group discussions carried out in Russia –, from the point of
view of the perception of human rights by the population, indicates
how the war has fuelled intolerance and ethnic prejudices. Russian
public opinion seems more concerned with Russian casualties and the
economic consequences of the war than with the human rights situation.
This leads to discuss the strategy that human rights organizations
and Western governments could follow in order to increase the visibility
of this war and reverse these violent and dangerous trends.
