Welcome to the open access journal archive of Security and Human Rights and its predecessor, Helsinki Monitor.

This academic journal was established in 1990 under the auspices of the Netherlands Helsinki Committee. It publishes peer-reviewed articles on matters relating to human rights and cooperative security in the OSCE area, including conflict prevention, counter-terrorism, and geopolitics. For an extensive list of topics covered by the Journal visit our about page. In 2022, Security and Human Rights transitioned to a self-publishing model, having formerly published numerous editions in association with Brill Academic Publishers. Previous editions of Security and Human Rights can be found on this page. Please note that this archive is not yet fully complete, however, it is being continually updated to include older editions of the Journal in open access.
