Project description

The purpose of the project is to study the realisation of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms in the Croatian and Slovenian legal orders in terms of both procedural and substantive human rights. The project aims to determine whether and how Croatian and Slovenian administrative and judicial authorities apply the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. It aims to determine whether the Croatian and Slovenian constitutional courts apply and refer to the convention and the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. The research project also focuses on the issue of the value added by the convention to the administrative and constitutional protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the Croatian and Slovenian legal orders. The project is financed by the School of Government and European Studies, the Faculty of Law of the University of Zagreb, the Slovenian Research Agency and the Croatian institution in charge of research in accordance with the Call for Proposals to Receive Co-Funding for Scientific Research Collaborations between the Republic of Slovenia and the Republic of Croatia in 2014–2015 (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia No. 35/2013 of 26 April 2013).
