The Statewatch Bulletin was launched in 1991 and at the beginning of 2013 became the Statewatch Journal - 2014 marked its 24th year of publication. With regret, in June of that year we had to take the decision to suspend publication due to a lack of resources. Articles intended for publication were included in an essay collection.
The Bulletin/Journal was published quarterly and included articles, reviews and research sources analysing policies and practices adopted by European national governments and EU institutions and their implications for civil liberties. Contributors included lawyers, academics, journalists, researchers and community activists drawn from countries across Europe.
All back issues are available for free online and are listed chronologically below. You can still support our work financially by making a donation or becoming a Friend of Statewatch.
