""The Baltic Yearbook of International Law"" is an annual publication containing contributions on topical issues in international law and related fields that are relevant to Baltic affairs and beyond. In addition to articles on different aspects of international law, each Yearbook focuses on a theme with particular importance for the development of international law. The Yearbook serves as an important source of information and analysis not available elsewhere on the practices of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in international law. Book reviews refer to books published in the Baltic States and concerning Baltic issues. Despite a clear Baltic ownership, the book aims at contributing to the development of thought, standard-setting and relevant practices in the world. Volume 2 is devoted to different issues presenting fresh challenges in the field of human rights law with a particular focus on biomedicine and human rights.
