The Emergence of the European Human Rights Law

An Essay on Judicial Creativity

By Dragoljub Popovic

This book looks at how the legal provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights emerged into a vast body of European human rights law. It presents a creative and thorough analysis of the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and shows how the Court manages to bring and hold together judges coming from a great number of diverse legal and cultural traditions. The analysis of key issues - such as creativity, binding force of precedence, and interpretation - illustrate the complexity of the case-by-case international protection of human rights. This analysis will give both scholars and practitioners insight into a prudent and innovative construct of opinions on the Court's jurisprudence. The book is a valuable contribution to emerging European human rights law.
