Harvard Human Rights Journal on ECHR

I had not yet referred to it earlier, but the last issue of 2008 of the Harvard Human Rights Journal contains an article by Jennifer Reiss on Russian non-ratification of Article 14: 'Protocol No. 14 ECHR and Russian Non-Ratification: The Current State of Affairs'. Although the article was written before the adoption of Protocol 14-Bis (which is only referred to at the end of the publication), it is still a useful overview of the reasons for Russia's non-ratification. By the way, the Russian Duma, decided last week to resume the question of the ratification of Protocol No. 14 to the European Convention on Human Rights. Who knows what news may come from Moscow...
