This publication, born out of the co-operation between 41 universities in the 27 EU countries, is a commentary and a narrative from the national perspective concerning the reception and understanding of the UDHR in the legal and political order of each country on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In addition, the three European regional organisations (the Council of Europe, the European Union, and the Organisation of Security and Co-Operation in Europe) contribute to this unique book.

There is the experience of the original West European countries that created the Council of Europe and later became the European Union; the experience of countries which have been under dictatorship and managed to rid themselves of the yoke of authoritarian rule; the experience of the Central and East European countries that remained so long behind the so-called Iron Curtain, and the experience of a number of countries which were placed in a particular historical context.
