The publication “The Contemporary Human Rights Situation in Central and Eastern Europe” is a result of shared design between the Friedrich Naumann Foundation, Russia and Central Asia, office in exile, Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom for Central Europe and the Baltic States, and the Novum Institute from Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Forthcoming event is going to hold a debate with some contributing authors, analyzing contemporary human rights situation in Hungary, Russia, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Belorussia and Poland. Each had the freedom to focus on the issues they regard to be pressing in their country.
At the time of multiple crises across Europe and the world, we believe Europe’s communication with itself is of utmost importance. At the same time, the dialogue between cultural communities should be supported by knowledgeable information sharing and respectful debate. While the political context in the selected countries differs we wish to stimulate an exchange of opinions within a broader European framework to examine recurring patterns and identify some common challenges facing human rights.
