Overall, the Yearbook comprises 31 contributions by 44 authors in five sections, and explains and contextualizes key developments in human rights in the past year, such as the Syrian conflict and the refugee crisis. Edited jointly by representatives of four major European human rights research, teaching and training institutions, the Yearbook 2016 provides much-needed analysis of the human rights challenges the world is faced with. It covers comprehensively the three main organizations charged with securing human rights in Europe (EU, Council of Europe and OSCE) and remains, in its 8th edition, essential reading for anyone interested in human rights in Europe and the world.
