The place of the European Convention on Human Rights within the legal order of the European Union has been the subject of much controversy for 20 years. It has now been 22 years since the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg first referred specifically to the Human Rights Convention in one of its judgements. Since then it has considered and commented on almost all of the substantive articles of the Human Rights Convention in the context of European Community law.;In this text, these references to the European Convention on Human Rights by the European Court of Justice, the Court of First Instance and the Advocates General of the two Courts have been brought together and published by reference to the substantive right under consideration.;This book is clearly set out with extensive tables to permit the reader to follow in chronological order the development of the Court's thinking regarding each article of the European Convention on Human Rights. It should be a valuable reference work for any practitioner, academic lawyer or student working in the field either of human rights or European Community law, who needs to look at the actual source material on the Court of Justice's handling of its Member States' human rights obligations.
