Abandoned Before Publication

Human Rights Damages, a new looseleaf, has been especially designed to pull together the jurisprudence of the European court with regard to damages. It acts as a practical research tool for solicitors or barristers needing to assess the likely award of damages (either claimants or those defending claims) under the Human Rights Act.

Divided into two sections, the first section comprises a narrative commentary, outlining the general approach of the European Court of Human Rights to damages. It includes discussion of how other Commonwealth jurisdictions have dealt with the issue of damages for human rights breaches.

The second section deals with specific articles, providing an exposition of the principles as applied in case law. This is followed by a catalogue of the Court's previous awards under the relevant articles. A brief synopsis of the case is followed by the aggravating features, and then the amount awarded at the time.

  • The only publication to consolidate case law and principles on human rights damages
  • Provides commentary on both the theory and the practical aspects
  • Includes multiplier tables to account for inflation over time, as well as exchange rate tables
  • Looseleaf format allows three regular updates a year, keeping the reader up to date
