The European Court of Human Rights between Law and Politics provides a comprehensive analysis of the origins and development of one of the most striking supranational judicial institutions. The book brings together leading scholars and practitioners to cast new light on the substantial jurisprudence and ongoing political reform of the Court. The broad analysis based on historical, legal, and social science perspectives provides fresh insights into the institutional crisis of the Court and the future of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.

The European Court of Human Rights is in many ways an unparalleled success. The Court embarked, during the 1970s, upon the development of a progressive and genuinely European jurisprudence. In the post-Cold War era, it went from being the guarantor of human rights solely in Western Europe to becoming increasingly involved in the transition to democracy and the rule of law in Eastern Europe. Now the protector of the human rights of some 800 million Europeans from 47 different countries, the European system is once again deeply challenged - this time by a massive case load and by the Member States' increased reluctance towards the Court. This book paves the way for a better understanding of the system and hence a better basis for choosing the direction of the next stage of the Court's life.

Review:

"Every contribution to the book is relevant, illuminating and worthwhile reading.... Its purchase is highly recommended and should be a must for those actually involved in the reform process: at the Court, at the Parliamentary Assembly, at government departments, but also for anyone interested
in the work of the Court and its functioning."

--Birgit Peters, Nordic Journal of Human Rights

"All in all, The European Court of Human Rights between Law and Politics is a welcome addition to the growing corpus of multi- and interdisciplinary research on the Court. Its chapters usefully summarise some of the Court's key development trajectories, highlight the current problems that have
emerged, especially in light of the caseload explosion, and intelligently address some of the implications for the future of the ECHR system, including possible reforms."

--Andreas von Staden, Human Rights Law Review

"There are some bold, some might say brave, suggestions which mark the book out from previous similar works."

--Journal of the Commonwealth Lawyers' Association 2011

"The European Court of Human Rights between Law and Politics offers a timely interdisciplinary analysis of the current need for reform of the European Court of Human Rights through the analytical framework of the institution's origins and function."

--Rachel Clare Herron, Legal Studies
