The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights is looking for a volunteer to support the Team ‘Human Dignity and Public Security’. The volunteer will get an insight into and be involved in a number of projects on the prevention of torture and ill-treatment.

In this contribution to the Verfassungsblog, Adel-Naim Reyhani addresses the question of how asylum law discourse should deal with the creative efforts of states to prevent the entry of asylum seekers. He explains why the tension between human rights and the aim of nation-states to shape asylum policy can only be resolved with a clear view of the shortcomings of the international order.

Crowdfunding Kampagne

A big THANKS to all of you for your incredible support! Not only did we reach our funding goal but also we exceeded it.

Thanks also to our testimonials for sharing their words and ideas on the importance of a global cooperation platform; our partners HURIDOCS & LBG Open Innovation in Science Center, our Institute and anyone who contributed to our campaign.

Without all of you, we could not have made it!

Now, the work continues to bring the new Atlas of Torture to life.

At the opening ceremony

In June 1993, the World Conference on Human Rights took place in Vienna with the participation of more than 10,000 representatives from 171 countries. The Conference was a big success for the development of human rights and after two weeks of discussions, it was crowned by the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action (VDPA), which empowered the protection and promotion of human rights universally.

The government has proposed major changes in the constitutional distribution of competencies between the federal government and the Länder (see Draft Constitutional Law), including in the area of child protection services.
