Wiesand, Chainoglou, & Śledzińska-Simon: Culture and Human Rights: The Wroclaw Commentaries

Andreas J. Wiesand (ArCult Media), Kalliopi Chainoglou (Univ. of Macedonia - Law), & Anna Śledzińska-Simon (Univ. of Wroclaw - Law) with Yvonne Donders (Univ. of Amsterdam) have published Culture and Human Rights: The Wroclaw Commentaries (De Gruyter 2016). Here's the abstract:
The Wroclaw Commentaries address legal questions as well as political consequences related to freedom of, and access to, the arts and (old/new) media; questions of religious and language rights; the protection of minorities and other vulnerable groups; safeguarding cultural diversity and heritage; and further pertinent issues. Specialists from all over Europe and the world summarise and comment on core messages of legal instruments, the essence of case-law as well as prevailing and important dissenting opinions in the literature, with the aim of providing a user-friendly tool for the daily needs of decision or law-makers at different juridical, administrative and political levels as well as others working in the field of culture and human rights.
