The Czech Centre for Human Rights and Democracy and its partners – established human rights institutions from leading universities in Hungary, Poland and Slovakia – plan to launch a human rights journal on current developments in V4 countries. The project is supported by the Visegrad Fund.

Visegrad Fund

The V4 Human Rights Review will be an online quarterly human rights review, which will consist of four thematic sections. Each section will monitor and analyse the state of affairs and recent developments in democracy, rule of law and human rights protection in their respective Visegrad country (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia). In each issue of the V4 Human Rights Review there will be approximately three articles per section. The articles will be relatively short and accompanied by photographs. Therefore, the review will be easily accessible and attractive not only for legal and social sciences students, academics and practitioners, but also for the general public. The first issue will be published in the second half of 2019.

Furthermore, the partnering institutions and their members will organise together and participate in a one-day conference on democracy, rule of law and human rights protection which will take part in Brno (Czech Republic). The panels of the conference will focus on the current state of affairs and recent developments in the respective Visegrad countries. In addition, the outputs of the conference will be presented in the V4 Human Rights Review.
