The Estonian Human Rights Centre introduced the annual report “Human Rights in Estonia 2012” in April 2013. The report deals with Estonia’s development in nearly all rights contained in the European Convention on Human Rights.
Developments that took place in the field of human rights in Estonia in 2012 are described, analysed, illustrated by positive and negative examples as well as criticised, but not only that – specific recommendations for eliminating the shortcomings are also provided. Although each chapter has an author or authors, the report aims to provide a coherent overview of developments in human rights in Estonia as a whole.
The publication of the report was supported by the Estonian Ministry for Culture, Open Estonia Foundation and Tallinn Law School at Tallinn University of Technology.
