“Not since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights have fundamental rights - as constitutional norms and international human rights - been more contested. Their importance and efficacy, as well as their relationship to justice, democracy and good governance are regularly questioned. The mission of the Centre for Fundamental Rights is to engage with current and future challenges to fundamental rights from normative, legal and comparative perspectives through research, outreach and teaching. ”Başak Çalı | Director of the Centre for Fundamental Rights
