On 1st July 2016, Slovakia took over the six-month rotating Presidency of the Council of the EU from the Netherlands, as part of the Netherlands-Slovak-Maltese ‘Trio Presidency’ (January 2016 – June 2017).
On this occasion, the Language Library has prepared a note with suggestions for further reading. This is available in the Language Library and is based on a selection of books and periodicals (2010 onwards) in various policy areas of the Council.

Our readers will discover a variety of material in Slovak covering criminal procedural law, human rights, asylum law, civil law, as well as a selection of important decisions of the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice concerning the Slovak Republic.
Slovak is an Indo-European language that belongs to the West Slavic group of languages (together with the Czech and Polish).
