Book on National Judicial Treatment of ECHR

A new book on the use of the ECHR by national judges, in a comparative perspective, also with EU law, has been published: 'The National Judicial Treatment of the ECHR and EU Laws' (Europa Law Publishing 2010). A Comparative Constitutional Perspective'. It was co-edited by Giuseppe Martinico of the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies and Oreste Pollicino of Bocconi Univiversity have published. It does not cover all European countries, but most of the major ones. This is the abstract:

Do national judges start treating the provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights the same way they treat the EC law’s norms? In order to answer this question the editors (Giuseppe Martinico and Oreste Pollicino) involved scholars from the countries that are members both of the EU and the Council of Europe.

The book collects the proceeding of an international conference at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa (16-17 January 2010).
