Court Reform in a Fairy Tale

At the occasion of the retirement from the European Court of Human Rights of the German judge Renate Jaeger, a small and original analysis of the Court's current problems and predicaments has been written by Egbert Myjer and Peter Kempees, in the form of a fairy tale. It's entitled 'Jack and the Solemn Promise. A Cautionary Tale.' It has been published with Wolf Legal Publishers (ISBN 978-90-5850-574-3) and starts like this:

Once upon a time, not so very long ago (although it may seem ages ago to young people who have grown up with mobile telephones, pizza delivery services, music downloads and social networking web sites), there was an inhuman war. Of course, all wars are inhuman, but this one was really horrible, worse than anything anyone could remember.
An enjoyable read!
