Call for Contributions: European Yearbook on Human Rights 2024

The European Yearbook on Human Rights has issued a call for contributions for its 2024 issue. The Yearbook publishes mostly about the European Convention on Human Rights and the Council of Europe. It also contains sections on human rights in the European Union, the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe as well as cross-cutting analysis and commentary.

Here is the description of the call:

'The European Yearbook on Human Rights is shedding light on current human rights topics of concern and the most pressing issues that impair human rights protection, the rule of law and democracy in Europe and beyond. With special sections dedicated to the three main organisations securing human rights in Europe (EU, Council of Europe and OSCE) as well as a section on cross-cutting issues the Yearbook provides muchneeded analysis and insightful commentary. 

The Yearbook is edited by Philip Czech (Austrian Institute for Human Rights, University of Salzburg), Lisa Heschl and Gerd Oberleitner (both European Training and Research Centre for Human Rights and Democracy, University of Graz), Karin Lukas (Department of Legal Studies, Central European University) and Manfred Nowak (Global Campus of Human Rights).
