Latest editions of NPR and EP

At the end of 2017, the latest editions of two journals for Southeast Europe, co-published by the IRZ, came out. The journal "Nova pravna revija - časopis za domaće, njemačko i evropsko pravo" (New Legal Review - a journal of regional, German and European law; NPR for short) is distributed in all succession states of former Yugoslavia. Also, a new edition of the Macedonian journal for European Law, "Evropsko Pravo" (EP), was published.

The two journals cover a wide range of topics. The latest NPR edition deals with questions ranging from family and land register law and the CISG case law in Bosnia and Herzegovina, to information about recent developments of European and German laws.

The intensive cooperation between the Institute for Eastern European Law and the IRZ on Southeast Europe is furthermore continued with a publication of the translation of a comparative law paper on the legislative procedure in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia.

The paper was first published in the Jahrbuch für Ostrecht (Yearbook for Eastern European Law).

The new edition of the Macedonian journal on European law "EP" contains no less than seven papers by Macedonian authors covering the following issues, amongst others:

  • the conflicting fields of human rights and the fight against terrorism,
  • the freedom of expression according to the European Convention on Human Rights,
  • the European Central Bank and the issue of a democratic deficit and
  • legal multilingualism in the European Union.

Two comparative papers compare on the one hand the Macedonian value added tax with the European model of the net all-phase VAT system with pre-tax deduction, and on the other hand the legal provisions on the management and supervisory boards of public companies.

The edition furthermore contains a detailed report about the symposium on the "Legal transformation in Southeast Europe using former Yugoslavia as an example: prerequisites, parties involved, failures and successes - a preliminary review", which the IRZ organised at the end of 2017 in cooperation with the Southeast Europe Association (SOG).

The two journals are also spread via their own websites:
