We are very pleased to inform you that a jubilee 15th issue dealing with human rights of persons placed in detention was recently published! Its Editor-in-Chief, Vladimir Janoušek Pysk, has been working at the Office of the Czech Government Agent before European Court of Human Rights. Therefore, we are very happy and thankful that high quality and topicality of articles published in the CLR was maintained again. 🙂
Vladimir explained why he decided to choose such a non-mainstream topic:
“Protection of human rights is an extremely broad concept covering a wide variety of different issues. Those who enjoy personal liberty may protect their fundamental rights on their own. However, persons who are being kept in detention against their will for whatever reason cannot rely exclusively on their ability to protect themselves. In the nature of things, they are dependent on helping hand offered from the outside. Any yet, despite their blatant vulnerability, they frequently stood on the edge of society’s interest. Being an Editor-in-Chief was a unique opportunity to raise awareness about human rights of diverse categories of persons deprived of their liberty, being that prisoners, persons of unsound mind or migrants. I am particularly delighted that so many gifted students and fresh law-school graduates shared my vision and got on board with their thought-provoking contributions.”
