ICJ Bulletin no. 6 (December 1956)

The Soviet intervention in Hungary has set back the hopes of those who saw in legal developments in the USSR the possibility of a coming era of “peaceful coexistence”. It is therefore important to understand the nature and limitations of the legal changes of the late 50’s.

  • Editorial: Poznan Trials, Hungary, Middle East, and Vienna Conference
  • The “Rule of law” and “socialist legality” in the USSR
