Our magazine

Starting from 1990, the Unione forense per la tutela dei diritti umani publishes the quarterly journal “I diritti dell’uomo. Cronache e battaglie”, published by Editoriale Scientifica s.r.l. since 2014. The magazine serves the purpose of critical information and documentation on the normative and jurisprudential landscape of human rights, constituting a valuable reference point for legal practitioners, human rights activists, action movements and non-governmental organizations. The Presidency of the Council of Ministers and the Department for Information and Publishing, within the Human Rights Observatory, have recognized this crucial role. The journal has also obtained the high patronage of UNESCO and the recognition by the Ministry of Culture as a journal of high scientific and cultural value.

I diritti dell’uomo. Cronache e battaglie is widely distributed both nationally and internationally in international organisations, national institutions, universities, libraries, Italian cultural institutes, and other entities interested in the topic.

The journal is organised in thematic sections. Indeed, every issue includes:

  • An editorial focused on contemporary national and international human rights issues;
  • An essay section often curated by important personalities, contributing to the journal’s scientific value;
  • comments and notes section that gathers the opinions of leading experts regarding the functioning and activities of the bodies designed to ensure the respect of human rights;
  • Eleven columns focused on case-law and legislation updates;
  • The so-called giornale a più voci, in which human rights experts debate key issues offering a wide variety of perspectives and contributing to the great battle for human rights;
  • documents section, which is dedicated to the selection and translation of the most recent national and international case law on the subject, as well as relevant legislations.

In the framework of the counter-power function that the press must have in any democracy, the Unione forense per la tutela dei diritti umani claims, through the instrument of the journal, its role as a witness of events and at the same time its capacity as an association committed to the constant protection of human rights.
