EHU’s Center for Constitutionalism and Human Rights has published the first issue of the Journal of Constitutionalism and Human Rights–a new quarterly academic publication.
The journal aims to identify key contemporary legal issues related to constitutionalism and human rights, analyze problems related to the implementation of legal norms, and address the specifics of teaching law in Eastern Europe and the implementation of the EU's Eastern Partnership initiative. It will have a special focus on the processes taking place in the region stretching from the Baltic to the Black Sea ("Baltic-Black Sea Intermarum"), Russia, and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
The editorial board of the journal consists of academics and practitioners in the legal sphere from Belarus, France, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, as well as judges of the European Court of Human Rights.
It is hoped that Journal of Constitutionalism and Human Rights will fill critical gaps in the analysis of constitutional and legal theory and practice, as well as reconcile theory and practice in the fields of constitutionalism, international law, and human rights.
The publication of the journal is supported by the Council of Europe.
