New Journal with ECHR-related Articles

A brand new journal has been added to the universe of human rights periodicals: the Cyprus Human Rights Law Review. The new review, led by Leto Cariolou, of the European Human Rights Law Institute, aims to promote:

knowledge, appreciation and constructive discussion on matters of human rights law and policy, particularly those affecting the Cypriot legal order. The Review publishes articles and case notes that consider human rights from an international to domestic context, book reviews, analysis of recent jurisprudence and practice of international and regional human rights systems and analysis of recent and relevant jurisprudence and practice of Cypriot courts and other domestic authorities.

The majority of articles in the first issue relate to the European Convention of Human Rights. I mention those here:

  • Dean Spielmann, Recognition and Execution of foreign judgments and the European Convention on Human Rights
  • Panayotis Voyatzis, The right to legal assistance free of charge in the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights
  • Loukis G. Loucaides, The right to Freedom of Thought as protected by the European Convention on Human Rights  
  • Natasha Bakirci, Al-Skeini and others v. the United Kingdom
  • Daniel Rietiker, Neulinger and Shuruk v. Switzerland
  • Theodora Christodoulidou, Kafkaris (no.2) v. Cyprus
Congrats to the editors of this new review!
