15 August 2018

Arie Bloed has stepped down as Editor in Chief of the Security and Human Rights Monitor (SHRM). He has asked Christophe Paulussen, senior researcher at the T.M.C. Asser Instituut and research fellow at the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism-The Hague, to succeed him, which he has happily accepted. Christophe will focus mainly on the academic articles, whereas Stephanie Liechtenstein, Web Editor-in-Chief since 2012, will continue to be responsible for the interviews, policy articles, and news items published on the SHRM site.

Bloed is one of the founding members of the NHC and Helsinki Monitor, the original predecessor to the SHRM. He has led the journal turned online platform for over twenty-eight years. During the 30th Anniversary of the NHC Bloed received the decoration of ‘Officer’ in the Order of Orange-Nassau for the years of work he has devoted to the NHC, OSCE, and the Helsinki process.  You can learn more about Arie Bloed in his interview by former NHC Chair Ian de Jong.

Publishing and Organisation of the SHRM

The predecessors of the SHRM, the Helsinki Monitor then the journal Security and Human Rights have been published in hard copy by the esteemed Brill/Nijhoff (Brill). While it still encompasses a peer-reviewed journal to be published by Brill it has evolved into a multifaceted platform that provides analysis on the work of the OSCE, as well as on security and human rights challenges stemming from the OSCE region and beyond. The academic articles of the SHRM will be published on the site through Open Access in addition to annual/bi-annual publication in hard copy by Brill.
