The ECHR protects human rights in more than 40 European countries. If states fail to meet standards required by the Convention, victims of violations can complain to the Strasbourg Court. This book examines both the substance and procedure under the ECHR, and follows the structure of the Convention itself in explaining the key principles established by Strasbourg case law and procedural aspects of bringing a claim before the Court.
This new edition has been fully revised and updated to take account of all significant developments since 1995. In particular, the book focuses on the work of the new Court which has already handed down significant judgments under many articles of the European Convention. Both the procedure for bringing a claim before the Strasbourg Court and the substantive law of the Convention are covered. The book follows the structure of the Convention itself in explaining the key principles established by the case law of the Court of Human Rights. All these developments are explained in a narrative style which is aimed squarely at students and those needing an in-depth analysis of the work of the European Convention on Human Rights. Those new to the subject will obtain a comprehensive understanding of the work of the Strasbourg organs and the current state of European Convention case law.
