Abstract

This fourth edition of Law of the European Convention on Human Rights builds on the great strengths of earlier editions. An up-to-date account of Strasbourg case law and its underlying principles, this title facilitates an understanding of this key area of law. It explores the extent of the Convention’s influence upon the legal development of the contracting states, and reveals exactly how such a considerable impact has been achieved and maintained. It sets out and critically analyses the Strasbourg jurisprudence on each Convention article that constitutes the substantive guarantee, and examines the system of supervision. The Convention has effectively become the constitutional bill of rights for Europe, providing common human rights standards for the whole continent. National parliaments and courts must constantly look to the Convention when legislating and deciding cases, or run the risk of adverse Strasbourg judgments with which they must then comply. For all states, the Convention has been made enforceable in their national courts.
