This innovative text and materials book introduces the process and substance of European Human Rights Law. It also puts European Human Rights Law into a comparative framework, discussing human rights cases decided by the courts in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada. It includes an assessment of the widening of the Strasbourg system to include the newly democratic states of Central and Eastern Europe. This book will be invaluable to students and teachers as well as to practitioners, not only in the United Kingdom and North America, but all European States which adhere to the Convention.
