Rettsstaten – en veiledning for politikere foreligger nå på norsk, takket være tidligere vitenskapelig assistent Agnieszka Cybulska, som har oversatt heftet fra engelsk etter oppdrag fra SMR.

Formålet med denne veiledningen, som opprinnelig er et samarbeidsprosjekt mellom  Raoul Wallenberg-instituttet for menneskerettigheter og internasjonal humanitærrett ved Lunds universitet i Sverige og Hague Institute for Internationalisation of Law (HiiL) i Nederland, er å gi politikere en innføring i rettsstatens grunnleggende prinsipper.

Marek Linha graduated from the University of Oslo in 2014. His master thesis titled Counter-terrorism and social rights: The assessment of adverse effects of counter-terrorism on social rights of families of terror suspects and convicts in Indonesia investigates how the enforcement of counter-terrorism measures in Indonesia has led to serious interference with social rights of families of terror suspects and convicts, potentially amounting to violations of international human rights law.

The NCHR Indonesia programme assisted Marek with realizing an internship at a research institute in Indonesia, as well as conducting a field trip, making it possible for him to collect important data. He is currently working as an advisor at the Norwegian Organization for Asylum Seekers (NOAS).
