about

This book presents contentious case rulings by the European Court of Human Rights providing extensive case notes and questions. The book elucidates just how the Court came in those cases to contribute to lack of State accountability and to impunity for individual perpetrators of international crimes. Issues addressed include the Court's: derogation of the jus cogens nature of certain fundamental human rights, grant of State immunity from any liability for systemic torture, unjustified failure to classify certain European Convention on Human Rights violations as international crimes; and improper declining of jurisdiction where States participated in a U.N. peace-building mission that itself involved serious violations of the U.N. Charter human rights principles. The book argues that the moral integrity of the Court's rulings (rulings that promote and protect international human rights) is an essential aspect of promoting the internationalization of the rule of law.

Aus den Rezensionen: "... hier vorliegenden Monographie anerkennt diesen Umstand, unterzieht die Judikatur des EGMR jedoch einer kritischen Betrachtung. ... Die Autorin übt schwerwiegende Kritik an der Judikatur des EGMR, begründet ihre Aussagen jedoch stichhaltig anhand zahlreicher konkreter Fälle, deren Inhalt sie ausführlich wiedergibt. Insgesamt ist eine derartige Betrachtung des europäischen Systems »von außen« durchaus wünschenswert, da auf diesem Weg unter Umständen leichter über die positiven Effekte und Errungenschaften des EGMR hinausgeblickt und zu einer konstruktiven Fortentwicklung des internationalen Menschenrechtsschutzes beigetragen werden kann." (Petra Pann, in: NLMR Newsletter Menschenrechte, 2010, Issue 5, S. 327)
