New publication: human rights in Lithuania, 2018-2019 reviewed

Human Rights Monitoring Institute published a review “Zmogaus teises Lietuvoje 2018-2019” (Lithuanian for Human Rights in Lithuania, 2018-2019).

The study (soon to be translated to English) was conducted by 19 human rights experts (lawyers, political, social and health specialists) and examines human rights issues from a variety of perspectives, among which – the fight against discrimination, hate crimes, exploitation and violence, the protection of personal data and safeguarding the right to liberty, family life, self-expression, freedom of assembly and religion. A separate section of the publication is devoted to the topic of migrant and refugee rights.

The biennial publication is the only periodical digest in Lithuania describing the human rights situation.
