Italian Yearbook of Human Rights 2012


Edited By Centro interdipartimentale di ricera

The Italian Yearbook of Human Rights 2012 confirms and consolidates the structure and aims already set forth in the 2011 edition. Year by year, this series examines the steps that Italy has made 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.
The 2012 issue surveys the activities of the relevant national and local Italian actors, including governmental bodies, civil society organisations and university. It also presents reports and recommendations that have been addressed to Italy by international monitoring bodies within the framework of the United Nations, the Council of Europe or 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 international obligations.
The Italian Agenda of Human Rights that is set out in the volume focuses on immediate and long-term measures that should be taken to ensure human rights for all.
The Yearbook is edited by the Interdepartmental Centre for Human Rights and the Rights of Peoples at the University of Padua, in cooperation with the UNESCO Chair in Human Rights, Democracy and Peace at 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. It hosts the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on intercultural dialogue and human rights.
