We are delighted to announce that Stephanie Palmer has been appointed as one of the General Editors of the European Human Rights Law Review (EHRLR). Also appointed as General Editors are Kirsty Hughes, Associate Professor at the University of Cambridge and a member of Blackstone Chambers Academic panel, and Stevie Martin, Assistant Professor at the University of Cambridge.
The EHRLR provides unrivalled, cutting-edge coverage of key issues in human rights law. It is at the forefront of serious discussion and debate on the European Convention on Human Rights, EU human rights, the wider international framework for the protection of human rights and the Human Rights Act 1998 combining perspectives from academia, the legal profession, the judiciary and NGOs.
The editors are honoured to continue the work of Jonathan Cooper OBE, who was an inspiration to all who work in human rights. A special issue of the journal will be published in February and dedicated to Jonathan; a tribute which has been carefully created by members of the editorial board, and followed in April by the next issue.
This is a particularly crucial time given the context of the Independent Human Rights Act Review, legislative proposals and widespread criticism of human rights.
The General Editors welcome submissions and informal enquiries, and particularly encourage submissions from practitioners. The EHRLR publishes six issues a year and has scope for shorter as well as longer pieces, making it well placed to publish swift responses to important developments. All enquiries should be sent to [email protected].
