Jacobs, White, and Ovey: The European Convention on Human Rights

Eighth Edition

Bernadette Rainey, Pamela McCormick, and Clare Ovey

  • The authors - one academic and two practitioners 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, the 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

New to this Edition:

  • Covers the most significant developments since the publication of the seventh edition, in particular the adoption of Protocol 16 and the first advisory opinion of the Court
  • Includes a new section on the liability of state-owned enterprises
  • Examines case law in developing areas including new technologies
  • A revised concluding chapter reviews the ECHR's achievements, the relationship between the Court and the member states, and the future of the Court
