European Yearbook on Human Rights 11

Edited by: Wolfgang Benedek, Wolfram Karl, Florence Benoit-Rohmer, Manfred Nowak

In the human rights field, 2010 was a year both of continuity and reform, from the 10th anniversary of the European Charter on Fundamental Rights and the quickening pace of the EU's accession to the European Convention on Human Rights, to the reform of the Human Rights Council. Defining and discussing key developments in human rights in Europe and in the world, this 2011 edition of the European Yearbook on Human Rights brings together 33 contributions by renowned human rights experts that provide a much needed overview and much sought after analysis. Edited jointly by representatives of four major European human rights institutions, the Yearbook contains extensive sections on developments in the three main organizations charged with securing human rights in Europe: the EU, the Council of Europe, and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe. A further chapter contains contributions on the role of civil society in human rights protection and on cross-cutting topics. Holistic in its approach, but detailed in its analysis, European Yearbook on Human Rights 11 provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the human rights situation in Europe in 2010. The impressive array of contributors - academics, diplomats, practitioners, and human rights experts - makes the book essential reading for anyone interested in human rights in Europe and beyond.
