1095

On June 7-8, 2019, the International Scientific and Practical Conference “Development of legal science: choice mechanism and priorities implementation” was held in Snina (the Sloval Republic). The conference’s co-organisers (Pan European University, the Center for Ukrainian and European Scientific Cooperation, public organisation “Lex Pro Omnes” and Uzhhorod National University) put a great deal of effort to carry out event at a high international level.

The conference was devoted to the celebration of the 5th foundation anniversary of «Visegrad Journal on Human Rights», the first legal journal on human rights within the Visegrád Group. The first issue was published in October, 2014 and publicly-presented among outstanding scholars of the Central and East Europe. The focus and title is closely related to “Visegrad Four” or “V4”, an alliance of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia for the purposes of cooperating in areas of interest in the context of general European integration. The four central European countries always have been exchanging cultural and intellectual values; further, they strive to conserve and consolidate traditions which have common roots. In order to keep and promote cooperation, V4 attaches great importance to information sharing. In addition, activity of the Visegrád Group aims at effective collaboration with all countries, in particular with neighbours; the ultimate objective is a democratic development of all European parts that is impossible without due attention to the problems of protection of human rights. For this very reason, «Visegrad Journal on Human Rights» was created in October 2014 covering the most topical issues in the areas of realising and protecting human rights and freedoms.

On June 6, conference participants met in Uzhhorod where the guests came from all over Ukraine. During the day they were accommodated in “Praha” hotel, and then guests rested after the trip and walked around a picturesque city. In the evening, all participants who came to Uzhhorod visited the festal stand-up party in the hotel where guests were introduced with organisers and partners of the conference. Acquaintance and communication took place in pleasant and friendly atmosphere.
