European Convention on Human Rights

Sixty Years and Beyond

Edited by: B. Krishnamurthy, Geetha Ganapathy-Doré

Europe claims to have historically and traditionally developed a human rights culture, along with an adherence to liberalism. Several European scholars have attempted to contest, criticize, and challenge the fundamental rights and the system perpetuated to promote and protect them, with the sole aim of strengthening and reinforcing these rights. This book examines and evaluates the contribution of the European human rights regime, established 60 years ago under the auspices of Council of Europe. The contributions by scholars from India and Europe cover different aspects of this experience and its outcome.
