The Italian Yearbook of Human Rights 2020, marking the 10th edition of this publication, offers an up-to-date overview of the measures Italy has taken to adapt its legislation and policies to international human rights law and to comply with commitments voluntarily assumed by the Italian Government at the international level on the subject of fundamental rights. It surveys the most significant activities of national and local Italian actors at the domestic and international levels, including civil society organisations and universities. It also dedicates space to recommendations made by international monitoring bodies within the framework of the United Nations, OSCE, the Council of Europe, and the European Union. Finally, the Yearbook provides a selection of international and national case-law that casts light on Italy's position vis-à-vis internationally recognised human rights.

"Italy and Human Rights in 2019: Back on Track?" is the title of the 2020 Yearbook introduction. The in-depth analysis on a human rights theme offered in this edition concerns Italy’s behaviour in the context of the Third Universal Periodic Review at the United Nations Human Rights Council.

As in the previous years, the Italian Agenda of Human Rights 2020 updates on the legislative, infrastructural and policy-making fronts where action is required to strengthen the Italian human rights system.
