There is no mention in the European Convention on Human Rights of rights in the field of social security. Nevertheless, the Convention does protect certain of these rights which come into its area of application and this study sets out to explain how.

It also examines recent developments in the relevant case-law of the European Court of Human Rights which, as well as affording proceduralguarantees, has widened and strengthened the material protection of specific rights.

In addition, examples are given of measures taken in the member states following judgments of the Court in cases concerning social security. This sort of judgment is becoming more common, giving the Convention an ever-expanding social aspect which has an important impact at national level.
