Administrative law covers a wide range of different areas such as construction, traffic, public procurement, property restitution, pensions, taxes and others. Administrative acts have a great impact on citizens’ daily life, which is why it is important that citizens have the right to appeal against administrative acts that affect their rights or obligations. The competence of the Administrative Court is very important for entire state system to function, because the Administrative Court exercises judicial control over the legality of acts of the executive power. Guaranteeing judicial control of administrative acts by an impartial, efficient and independent court is essential for the protection of human rights and the rule of law.

About the project: The Internet provides a wealth of information and knowledge opening up new opportunities but also challenges for freedom of expression. The principle of freedom of expression can be applied not only to traditional media, but also to the Internet and all kinds of media platforms, which contribute to the development of democracy and dialogue. Although the right to freedom of expression is a basic human right, it is not absolute. Like most rights, freedom of expression can be legally limited in the situations when the restrictions are reasonable and justified in an open and democratic society. Despite the declarative commitment to freedom of expression, many journalists, human rights lawyers, activists, and ordinary citizens face misdemeanor and criminal charges, civil lawsuits, and different types of persecution.

Legal capacity is a basic precondition for exercising other rights, and deprivation of legal capacity brings with it huge consequences for the daily life and freedom of persons with disabilities. Deprivation of legal capacity practically leads to “civil death” and deprives a person of basic human rights, which endangers his autonomy. Complete deprivation of legal capacity completely excludes any possibility of deciding and disposing of one’s rights.
