European Yearbook on Human Rights 2020 Special focus: Rights of the Child, Call for Contributions

admin - 22nd December 2019

The European Yearbook on Human Rights explains and contextualizes key developments in human rights in the past year. 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 much-needed analysis and insightful commentary. Since 2019 marked the 30s anniversary of the Convention for the Rights of the Child, a special section of the 2020 edition of the Yearbook will be dedicated to developments with regard to the protection of the rights of the child in Europe and beyond. The Yearbook is edited by representatives of the three major Austrian human rights research, training and teaching institutions – the European Training and Research Centre for Human Rights and Democracy of the University of Graz, the Austrian Human Rights Institute of the University of Salzburg and the Ludwig Boltzman Institute of Human Rights, Vienna – and the Global Campus of Human Rights, Venice. It is published by Intersentia and all contributions are subject to a double-blind review process ensuring the highest academic standards.
