About the author

The Yearbook is edited by the University of Padova Human Rights Centre, in cooperation with the UNESCO Chair in Human Rights, Democracy and Peace of the same University. The Centre, established in 1982 with the support of the Region of Veneto, carries out research and education following a global and interdisciplinary approach.

About the book

The Italian Yearbook of Human Rights 2019 offers an up-to-date overview of the measures Italy has taken to adapt its legislation and policies to international human rights law and to comply with commitments voluntarily assumed by the Italian Government at the international level on the subject of fundamental rights. The 2019 Yearbook surveys the most significant activities of national and local Italian actors at the domestic and international levels, including civil society organisations and universities. It also dedicates space to recommendations made by international monitoring bodies within the framework of the United Nations, OSCE, the Council of Europe, and the European Union. Finally, the Yearbook provides a selection of international and national case-law that casts light on Italy's position vis-à-vis internationally recognised human rights.

"Italy and Human Rights in 2018: Does Omission Follow Inaction?” is the title of the 2019 Yearbook introduction. The in-depth analysis on a human rights theme offered in this edition regards the implementation of the National Action Plan against Trafficking in Human Beings (2016–2018).

As in the previous years, the Italian Agenda of Human Rights 2019 updates on the legislative, infrastructural and policy-making fronts where action is required to strengthen the Italian human rights system.
