The topic under consideration at the XVIIIth International Congress of AIDP is fundamentally the same as that dealt with at the XIIth Congress – the protection of human rights in criminal proceedings. Even at that time, it was not a new issue – in 1953, under the title of ‘The Protection of personal freedoms during criminal proceedings’, the VIth Congress dealt with the same problems. It is remarkable that the term ‘human rights’ was not yet mentioned, even though the European Convention had been adopted almost three years earlier. In the meantime the subject has become a central concern for the international community which is demonstrated by the present publication which unites the General Report of the AIDC with that of the AIDP.
