In his speech Vice-rector stated: “For me this event is remarkable, because we will discuss not only the human rights issues in the constitutional law context, we will also honor the prominent scientist, whose student I am proud to be – Yurii Mykolayovich Todyka. Regrettably, the life of Yurii Mykolayovich was not so long and many of his thoughts were not realized. He was the author of dozens of monographs, educational books and countless articles, presentations on conferences. However, the most important role for me had his lectures. The format of the youth conference, chosen for Todyka readings, seems to me the most appropriate, because especially in this kind of format the innovative results could be achieved. Y. M. Todyka loved so much to communicate with students and young scientists, believing that the future of law science is in their hands. The Vice-rector also paid attention that “human rights problematic issues not only do not lose the topicality, rather getting absolutely new and interesting dimensions. Formulating the topic of science discourse organizing committee tried to cover the whole human rights spectrum, regardless to generations and classifications”.
