The European Convention on Human Rights can now be invoked by 800 million people across 46 member states. It is the most developed and successful system of international legal protection for fundamental human rights in existence.
The first edition of this widely used work was designed to address the challenge faced by undergraduate and postgraduate students in comprehending the extensive, complex and lengthy jurisprudence emanating from Strasbourg. This updated and expanded edition, including over 210 new judgements, continues that mission. 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 and its Protocols.
Separate chapters are devoted to each of the fundamental rights, providing an in-depth analysis of the rights and freedoms and their limitations. This edition also includes an expanded examination of the background to the creation of the Convention, and the constantly developing system of adjudication and remedies at the European level. The operation of the European Court of Human Rights, and the new Protocol 14 reforms are fully elaborated.
