Twinning for human rights research excellence

Through the EU's twinning initiative for research bodies, Tallinn University has teamed up with the Danish Institute for Human Rights and Germany's Walther Schücking Institute of International Law to expand world-class research into human rights whilst raising excellence in the field.

Through the project, Tallinn University’s Law School is expected to develop the capacity that will enable it to become a leader in his research field in the Baltic region. It has already established the International Research Centre of Fundamental rights, and also plans a new research project exploring the changing nature of human rights in contemporary society, and to build bridges between Estonian, Baltic and Russian human rights researchers and activists.

The project will also lead to a new regional peer-reviewed academic journal, the East European Yearbook on Human Rights, due to be launched in 2018. The journal is positioned both as a channel for Eastern European scholars to publish on regional and wider human rights issues, and for authors from other regions to provide input on human rights issues that are particularly relevant in the Eastern European setting.

Eastern European states have all undergone a transition from state socialism to liberal democracy. While the problems of transition vary from country to country, there are common concerns that been tackled in each country. The journal is a venue to share both shared and disparate experiences in relation to human rights and could be a valuable resource for research into other transition situations.
