With growing populism and further backlash against human rights defenders, 2016 saw a year of growing human rights challenges. Across 33 contributions in five sections, the European Yearbook on Human Rights 2017 explains and contextualizes key developments in human rights in the past year. With special sections dedicated to each of the three main organizations charged with securing human rights in Europe (EU, Council of Europe and OSCE), as well as a section on cross-cutting issues, the Yearbook provides much-needed analysis and insightful commentary. Edited jointly by representatives of four major European human rights research, teaching and training institutions, the Yearbook 2017 remains, in its 9th edition, essential reading for anyone interested in human rights in Europe and the world.
