We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our cooperation partners and colleagues for the fruitful and exciting cooperation - without you the numerous projects and ventures of the past years would not have been possible! We would like to especially thank our colleagues at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights as well as those at the Human Rights Master Programme of the University of Vienna, with whom we not only shared our offices, but also a particularly close cooperation.
