In this legal opinion, Adel-Naim Reyhani (BIM) and Manfred Nowak (BIM) deal with the balancing of interests in the context of interferences with the right to respect for private and family life in Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).

The Straniak Academy for Democracy and Human Rights is a two week summer school, which is organised by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights - Research Association (BIM-FV) since 2013. The aim of the Academy is to promote academic education in the fields of democracy, human rights and the rule of law by connecting the main theoretical concepts with practical experience of experts by using an interdisciplinary and interactive format. This year, the Academy will take place from 2 to 15 September 2018 in Saranda, Albania.

Call for applications open until 10 July 2018.

After ten successful years, the term of the Research Centre Human Rights ends on 30 June 2018. The Research Centre Human Rights, over the years, was an important university-based research partner of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights. We would like to cordially thank all involved colleagues and partners for the fruitful and exciting cooperation.

The BIM will continue the good collaboration with the University of Vienna and will re-define its shape over the coming months.

Atlas of Torture

On the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights highlights the need to improve access to information and strengthen cooperation to advance the fight against torture by launching a beta version of the Atlas of Torture.

The website launch is part of a large crowdfunding campaign. We need to raise 50,000€ until 13 July. Please support us to bring the Atlas of Torture to life!
