KHRP Publishes Latest Issue of Legal Review
Tuesday, 29 June 2010 16:39

KHRP is pleased to announce the publication of the latest issue of Legal Review, our bi-annual legal journal. Legal Review is essential reading for anyone interested in legal developments in Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Syria and the Caucuses and is the only existing legal journal covering significant legislative and policy developments in the Kurdish regions.

Legal Review 17 covers the period from January to June 2010 and features news and updates relevant to the Kurdish regions, as well as summaries and analysis of relevant decisions of international, UK and US Courts. Articles in this edition cover the impact of the Turkish Anti-Terror Provisions on the obligations of state signatories under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the development of the concept of positive obligations under the European Convention of Human Rights as one of the most important factors of its interpretation, an analysis of the current reservations of 42 State parties to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), and the reasons for improving witness protection for victims of torture and related international crimes.

The latest issue of Legal Review may be downloaded for free from the KHRP website (alongside an archive of back-issues), or may be purchased in print for £10 + P&P from the KHRP shop.
