Edited by Stijn Smet and Eva Brems
Reviews and Awards
"Overall, When Human Rights Clash at the European Court of Human Rights is an important collection of writings that will prove useful for legal practitioners and judges. There is also much in the edited volume for students and scholars of human rights law to engage with and enjoy. ... The chapters in the edited volume and their comparison and systematisation by Smet in the introduction make an input that not only helps in understanding the existing dynamics, but that can also influence them." - Vladislava Stoyanova, Nordic Journal of Human Rights
"Stijn Smet and Eva Brems have assembled an impressive volume ... Although the editors and contributors to this book are focused on the ECtHR, they share a desire to gain a degree of predictability in how judges decide cases. The attempt to sketch a larger framework of how to think about the concept of conflicting rights in general is a bold undertaking and the contributors have made significant strides in this regard. Lawyers, law students, scholars, rights advocates, philosophers, ethicists, politicians, and judges would all benefit from considering the issues and the cases that are addressed in this book." - Jeff Gottlieb, Reading Religion
