A Theory of Interpretation of the European Convention on Human Rights

George Letsas

  • Provides a critical account of the use of state consensus, evolutive interpretation, and the doctrine of the margin of appreciation in the case law of the ECHR
  • Defends the view that the ECHR rights are absolute rights which must be applied in a principled manner across the 46 European member States
  • Discuses cases as well as philosophical theories - striking an appropriate balance between the two
