European Convention on Human Rights: Sixty Years and Beyond

B Krishnamurthy (Author) Geetha Ganapathy-Dore (Author)

The Europeans always claim that they have historically and traditionally developed a human rights culture and adherence to liberalism. On the human rights front, they believe that they are leading by their sterling example. Several European jurist scholars have attempted to contest, criticise and challenge fundamental rights and the system perpetuated to promote and protect them with the sole aim of strengthening and reinforcing them.

The present volume examines and evaluates the contribution of the European human rights regime, established 60 years ago under the auspices of Council of Europe. It dwells on lessons which Europe and other countries can learn from this experience - at once rich and rewarding - in protecting and promoting human rights. The contributions from scholars, both Indian and European, cover different aspects of this experience and its outcome.
