Central and Eastern European Legal Studies
 
The extensive transformation of social structures and public powers started in Central and Eastern Europe since the end of the 80's has urged the European Group of Public Law and the European Public Law Center (now European Public Law Organization), since their respective foundation, to envisage the introduction in the heart of the European Review of Public Law of a special series of studies entitled Central and Eastern European Legal Studies.

A structural change has been carried out with regard to this publication, which up to now had been a special edition of the European Review of Public Law.

With a view to reshaping this effort and to advancing even further its image and scientific input after the lapse of almost 15 years since the Central and Eastern European Legal Studies (CEELS) was launched, the Series has been reshaped first through the establishment of its own Board of Editors, composed by renown academics from countries of the Central and Eastern Europe as well as from Western European countries, all of them specialized in this area.

The aim is to give the opportunity to academics coming from CEE countries and also to academics from other countries specializing in this field, to come together and exchange views on public law issues of these countries.

This will be a publication appearing twice a year and in order to expand to a wide circle of readers articles will be accepted in English, French, Russian, German, Italian as well as in the native languages of authors coming from CEE countries (including the Turkish and Greek languages).

The second paper examines the relationship between EU law and the Constitution of the Slovak Republic and the way of its subordination to EU law even in cases where such attitude is harming the enforcement of the Constitution. The purpose of the third article included in this CEELS number is to analyze the institution of the Ombudsman that successfully functions in the Republic of Armenia, while showing the importance of the Ombudsman, revealing the characteristics of the activites of Ombudsmen from different countries, presenting the particularities of the legislative regulation of the Ombudsman in the Republic of Armenia and the positive and negative aspects of this regulation as well as the legislative reforms that could help in improving the institution's work. The next paper deals with the institute of public hearings in Slovakia and in the Czech Republic, as a tool for the involvement of the public in decision-making in public affairs. Another article analyzes the extent of transposition of the right to counsel requirements into the Czech and Slovak legislation on administrative sanctioning, including also the study of the current case law of both the ECtHR and the national instances of these two countries. Issues on the legislation on environmental protection and the respective legislative and enforcement problems in the Republic of Armenia as well as the European experience in this field and the prospects for solving the problem of environmental protection are discussed in the next article. The environmental protection is the theme of the next paper as well, which comes from the Republic of Lithuania, focusing on the question of the financing of environmental protection measures at the local level in this country. Another article studies the origin, evolution and formation of the definition of bioethics in the global scientific thought from Antiquity to the present and examines the interpretation of the term "bioethics" by scientists from different countries, including Russia, Ukraine, Western Europe countries and the USA.
