As previously reported in this context several times, the team of the Southeast Europe project area at the IRZ has for many years worked closely with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg. As part of this cooperation, the IRZ and the ECHR issue joint publications, for example on the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and on the case law of the ECHR in the national languages of Southeast European countries. The IRZ also offers basic and further training events in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia, with the involvement of judges from the ECHR.

In the March edition of its "Information Note on the Court's case-law/ Note d'information sur la jurisprudence de la Cour", the Court cites the work carried out in cooperation with the IRZ as a good example of joint activities. The extensive report draws particular attention to the publications already produced as a result of this cooperation with funding from the Federal Foreign Office, which are also available to download from the Court's website as PDF documents. The latest example is the Serbian edition of the handbook on European anti-discrimination laws.

The article also underlines the significance of human rights in other work carried out by the IRZ and introduces the two magazines co-published by the IRZ in Southeast Europe, "Nova Pravna Revija" ("New Legal Review, NPR for short) and "Evropsko Pravo" (European Law, EP for short), as well as the specially dedicated website for questions on anti-discrimination. Both of these magazines are funded by the Federal Foreign Office using the German contribution to the Stability Pact for Southeast Europe. The website was set up within the framework of a regional project on anti-discrimination law, which was supported by the Federal Foreign Office with funds for the promotion of human rights.
