About us



Noua Revistă de Drepturile Omului (The New Journal of Human Rights, NRDO) is a quarterly publication edited by the Center for International Studies in collaboration with Pavesiana Publishing House. It was established in 2005, as a continuation of the Romanian Human Rights Review (Revista Romana de Drepturile Omului) (1993-2005). It is peer-reviewed and indexed in the international databases CEEOL, IndexCopernicus and DOAJ. The quarterly publishes studies on the theory and practice of human rights. Along its STUDIES section, NRDO includes a DOCUMENTARY section and a MISCELLANEA section, the latter dedicated to essays on law, book reviews, and translations into Romanian of famous essays on law or philosophy. In the ECtHR JURISPRUDENCE section we include an in-depth presentation of one or two ECtHR cases and a review of the ECtHR jurisprudence of the previous quarter. Noua Revistă de Drepturile Omului has been over time a valuable source for institutions and organizations involved in watching over, researching and promoting human freedom.

Noua Revistă de Drepturile Omului promotes the reconciliation between the principle of human dignity and the principle of human freedom. In the editors’ view, not only is the reconciliation of these two values possible, but dignity and freedom actually strengthen each other.

Noua Revistă de Drepturile Omului is an open access journal; articles in electronic format can be downloaded without charge on the NRDO site.
