Chapter 1

Harris, O'Boyle, and Warbrick Law of the European Convention on Human Rights

Third Edition

David Harris, Michael O'Boyle, Edward Bates, and Carla Buckley

  • Written by leading academics and practitioners at the Court
  • Comprehensive examination of the substantive content of all of the basic rights of the Convention, and successive Protocols as well as explaining the history and likely development of the law
  • Thorough analysis of the functioning of the system of supervision, with chapters dedicated to the law and practice on admissibility, the organisation, practice, and procedure of the Court, and the regime for the execution of judgements
  • Sets the Convention in its international context by examining its relationship with national and European Union law

New to this Edition:

  • Fully revised and updated to take into account developments such as the Lisbon Treaty, the forthcoming accession of the European Union to the European Convention, the entry into force of Protocols 12 and 14, and the opening for signature of Protocols 15 and 16
  • Each chapter has been thoroughly revised to take into account the very significant expansion of the jurisprudence since the last edition
  • Covers ongoing plans to streamline the workings of the Court, including the reform process concerning the future of the Court pursued at the Interlaken and Brighton conferences
  • The third edition has been restructured, now being divided into three parts addressing the Convention 'in context', the 'enforcement machinery' and the 'rights guaranteed' respectively
