Cases, Materials, and Commentary on the European Convention on Human Rights (3rd edn)
Titles in the Casebook on series provide readers with a comprehensive selection of case law extracts for their studies. Extracts have been chosen from a wide range of historical and contemporary cases to illustrate the reasoning processes of the courts and to show how legal principles are developed.
The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) can now be invoked by 800 million people across 47 member States. It is the most developed and successful system of international legal protection for fundamental human rights in existence. This book is designed to address the challenge in comprehending the extensive, complex, and lengthy jurisprudence emanating from Strasbourg. It provides a selection of the leading jurisprudence, together with commentary, enabling readers to gain a critical and contemporary understanding of the major rights and freedoms guaranteed by the ECHR. Separate chapters are devoted to each of the fundamental rights, providing an in-depth analysis of the rights and freedoms and their limitations. An examination of the background to the creation of the Convention, and the constantly developing system of adjudication and remedies at the European level, is also included.
