Background. Integrated Justice is a result of the process of regional integration under globalization. There are many integrated courts, but the European Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights are the most outstanding. It’s interesting to see the attitude of public opinion in Russia toward these two organs.
Materials and methods. The authors have worked out a questionnaire about the attitude towards Integrated Courts in Russia. This research was a continuation of the previous questionnaire. About 100 people participated, including 20 representatives from the the judiciary and 20 representetives of law enforcement of Penza region, 10 higher school professors and doctors and 50 students. The first part of questions was devoted to the European Court of Human Rights, the second part covered the European Court of Justice.
Results. 71 participants backed patriotic position that Russia under the impact of sanctions may ignor the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights, only 9 people acknowledged the positive effect of this organ upon the Russian Law. The majority (59 out of 100) pointed out the long delays in justice. But 73 people didn’t agree with the position of the Constitutional Court of Russia in the Markin case, which defended the sovereignty of our country. Concerning the activity of the European Court of Justice only 10 respondents knew about it.
Conclusions. Organs of integrated justice under globalization must be careful with state sovereignty. In spite of the desire of someones to boost integration it’s necessary to remember about the inner factor in development of states and respect its national interests.
European Court of Justice, European Court of Human Rights, integration, globalization, state sovereignty.
