The European Convention on Human Rights can now be invoked by 800 million people across 46 member states. It is the most developed and successful system of international legal protection for fundamental human rights in existence. The first two editions of this widely used work was designed to address the challenge faced by undergraduate and postgraduate students in comprehending the extensive, complex and lengthy jurisprudence emanating from Strasbourg. This updated edition continues that mission. It provides a selection of the leading jurisprudence, together with commentary, enabling readers to gain a critical and contemporary understanding of the major rights and freedoms guaranteed by the ECHR and its Protocols. Separate chapters are devoted to each of the fundamental rights, providing an in-depth analysis of the rights and freedoms and their limitations. An examination of the background to the creation of the Convention, and the constantly developing system of adjudication and remedies at the European level are also included. Cases, Materials, and Commentary on the European Convention on Human Rightsis essential reading for all those wishing to gain full understanding of this vital and ever-developing area of law.
