Theory and Practice of the European Convention on Human Rights

Fourth Edition

Edited by: A. Van Rijn, F. Van Dijk, Leo Zwaak, F. Van Hoof

Since the first edition of Theory and Practice of the European Convention on Human Rights in 1978, this book has become a reference in the field of human rights in Europe. It provides a systematic and comprehensive overview of the functioning of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and its application by the European Court of Human Rights. As a result of the increase in the number of Parties to the Convention from 22 in 1989 to 46 today and of the coming into force of Protocol No. 11, the protection of human rights in Europe and the case law of the Court have seen a dynamic development during the last decade. This is reflected in this fourth edition of Theory and Practice of the European Convention on Human Rights. ~Particular attention is paid to the changes that have taken place in the supervisory system as a result of the coming into force of Protocol No. 11 and to the central part that the Court plays in these changes. This edition also anticipates the entry into force of Protocol No. 14, which will again bring changes to the system. The result is a very accessible and easy-to-use reference book, which provides an essential source of information for the practitioners and theorists in the field of human rights.~
