topical issues of data protection and artificial intelligence in EU law, as well as the impact of Brexit in the European Judicial Area in Civil and Commercial Matters. This volume again includes special sections on International nuclear law and on the best interest of the child in health law. According to its tradition, the CYIL in its Volume 11 also heavily covers many aspects of private international law and international investment law, including the reform of private international law in Jordan, the concept of Sovereign Wealth Fund, responsibility of transnational corporations under the draft treaty on Business and Human Rights and investment treaties and investors’ responsibilities. The Yearbook also covers the Czech practice of international law, in particular, a list of treaties ratified by the Czech Republic, book reviews, and a survey of Czech international law bibliography. As usual, the authors of this publication come from both Czech and foreign institutions, who are from academia and legal practice. Compared to previous years, this volume includes more contributions from foreign professors and researchers, coming from or teaching in Austria, Brazil, Estonia, India, Jordan, Lithuania, Slovakia, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United States. As to the Czech institutions involved, these include Charles University in Prague, Palacký University in Olomouc, West-Bohemian University in Pilsen, Institute of Law of the Czech Academy of Sciences, the University of Economics in Prague, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, as well as some private law firms. This publication appears thanks to a continuing financial subsidy to the Czech Society of International Law from the Council of Scientific Societies of the Czech Republic. We are also grateful for the generous financial support from the law firm Skils (Prague). We also wish that this volume of the Czech Yearbook will find many readers and we are already looking forward to new authors and new contributions for the next volume in 2021. We are also grateful for any comments or suggestions on how to improve the quality of this journal.
