PILnet, through it’s Eurasia Clearinghouse obtained crucial legal research assistance for the Kazakhstan civil society organization Psychoanalytical Association, which serves people with cognitive disabilities.

PILnet obtained expert legal assistance through its clearinghouse to support the Association to bring legal challenges to defend the rights of persons with cognitive disabilities in Kazakhstan. PILnet drew on its extensive network to locate law firms across three continents with the expertise to provide legal analysis on a number of questions relating to the treatment of persons with cognitive disabilities and the rules on legal capacity in other jurisdictions including Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia, the United Kingdom, Norway, and Finland to further the organization’s mission.
