"Explores the key principles underpinning the decisions made by the European Court of Human Rights, and provides a guide to the pivotal cases in each area. The authors, two academics and a practitioner at the Court, have the combined experience to give accurate and insightful commentary on Strasbourg case law and procedure. From the overwhelming amount of Strasbourg case law, authors have selected the most essential cases to cover, resulting in an authoritative yet concise overview. Useful to students throughout Europe as it focuses on the European Convention, and the process and decisions of the Court, rather than the application of the Convention in any specific state. Maps course structure by examining each Convention right in turn, making coverage easy to find and follow"--Provided by the publisher.
