This book critically appraises the European Convention on Human Rights as it faces some daunting challenges. It argues that the Convention's core functions have subtly changed, particularly since the ending of the Cold War, and that these are now to articulate an 'abstract constitutional model' for the entire continent, and to promote convergence in the operation of public institutions at every level of governance.

The implications - from national compliance, to European international relations, including the adjudication of disputes by the European Court of Human Rights - are fully explored. As the first book-length socio-legal examination of the Convention's principal achievements and failures, this study not only blends legal and social science scholarship around the theme of constitutionalization, but also offers a coherent set of policy proposals which both address the current case-management crisis and suggest ways forward neglected by recent reforms.

  • A unique blend of legal and social science scholarship makes it an ideal companion to the many law-based textbooks which dominate the book-length literature
  • The first book-length study of the European Convention on Human Rights which attempts systematically to identify its key achievements and failures organized around the constitutionalization theme
  • By offering a coherent set of policy proposals for further reform it enables readers to understand the limitations of the reforms to be introduced by Protocol 14 in 2006
