Human rights are universal and indivisible. Their fundamental importance makes it essential for anyone with an interest in the field to keep abreast of the latest developments. The Netherlands Quarterly of Human Rights (NQHR) is an academic journal that reviews the latest evolutions in the promotion and protection of human rights across the world.
The Netherlands Quarterly of Human Rights is an academic publication which contains scholarly articles on human rights issues and the promotion and protection of human rights in international law from authors from around the world. It carries human-rights related contributions by acknowledged correspondents on recent developments in the field of human rights in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, as well as the various intergovernmental organisations (such as United Nations, the Council of Europe, the European Union, the Organisation on Security and Cooperation in Europe, the Organisation of American States, the African continent and the International Criminal Court). The texts of major international agreements, treaties and declarations are reprinted in the section ‘Appendices’. The section on documentation contains book reviews and descriptions of recent documents and literature in the field of human rights.
The Quarterly’s international team of leading editors commissions in-depth articles and book reviews that probe the issues that matter to people involved in the definition, study, implementation, monitoring, or enforcement of human rights.
An international editorial board guarantees the maintenance of a high standard of the articles published.
