About the Book

2015 saw a world in turmoil. The crisis in Syria and the fate of thousands of refugees on Europe's borders and in Europe's streets made 2015 a year in which human rights mattered more than ever. Across 31 contributions by 44 authors in five sections, the European Yearbook on Human Rights 2016 explains and contextualizes key developments in human rights in the past year. Edited jointly by representatives of four major European human rights research, teaching and training institutions, the Yearbook 2016 provides much-needed analysis of the human rights challenges the world is faced with. It covers comprehensively the three main organizations charged with securing human rights in Europe (EU, Council of Europe and OSCE) and remains, in its 8th edition, essential reading for anyone interested in human rights in Europe and the world. (Series: European Yearbook on Human Rights) [Subject: European Law, Human Rights Law]
