European Yearbook on Human Rights 2015
2014 was a year of transition and controversy in Europe: a new Parliament and new Commission were constituted and Opinion 2/13 of the Court of Justice of the European Union on the EU’s accession to the European Convention on Human Rights raised serious questions about the coherence and future character of the human rights protection regimes in Europe.
Across 38 contributions by 61 authors in five sections, the seventh edition of the European Yearbook on Human Rights 2015 explains and contextualizes key developments in human rights.
Edited jointly by representatives of four major European human rights research, teaching and training institutions, the Yearbook 2015 covers political and legal developments in the field of the three main organizations charged with securing human rights in Europe: EU, Council of Europe and OSCE. A chapter on cross-cutting topics helps understand the institutional dynamics of human rights protection in Europe. This edition also showcases the results of FRAME, a key human rights research project funded by the EU.
The impressive array of authors – academics and diplomats, practitioners and human rights experts – makes the book essential reading for anyone interested in human rights in Europe and beyond.
