Theory And Practice Of European Convention On Human Rights
Dijk, V.P. van
Now available in paperback! Since the first edition of Theory and Practice of the European Convention on Human Rights forty years ago, this book has become the 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. With Montenegro joining the Council of Europe in 2007, there are now 47 Parties to the Convention and Protocol No. 14 entering into force on 1 June 2010, the protection of human rights in Europe and the case law of the Court have seen a dynamic development during the last decade. A completely new - fifth - edition of Theory and Practice of the European Convention on Human Rights was thus very much needed. Particularly since Protocol 14 amended the control system of the Convention. The result is a very accessible, easy-to-use and up-to-date reference book, which provides an essential source of information for the practitioners, theorists and students in the field of human rights.
