Summary
"This book examines the case law of the European Court of Human Rights with particular reference to democratic transitions in Europe and the consequent enlargement of the European Convention system. Focusing firmly on the substantive jurisprudence of the court, the book analyses how it has responded to the difficult and distinct circumstances presented by the new contracting parties. Faced with different stages of, and commitments to, democratic transition, how has the court reacted to such diversity whilst maintaining the universality of human rights - and how is this reflected in its judgments? The book tackles this question by matching rigorous doctrinal analysis of the case law with new developments in critical thinking. The cases are viewed through the prism of jurisprudence and political philosophy, with links made to European political integration and other international human rights systems. The book offers an original explanation of the court's predicament by drawing upon "thick" and "thin" notions of morality and tying this to notions of essential contestability. This book will be of particular interest to students and scholars of EU law and human rights"--
