This seminar will examine and assess the European Human Rights legal system. Its focus will lie with the substantive jurisprudence of the Court (e.g. the Right to Life, Freedom from Torture, Due Process, Derogation), as well as the broader mechanisms for the enforcement of human rights through the Council of Europe system. A particular emphasis will be placed on the responses of the European Human Rights system to the post 9/11 context.
Meet the instructor, Visiting Scholar Eszter Kirs.
