New issues IAEHR Journal and HRLR

Two human rights journals have just released their newest issues. Please find an overview here of the articles that relate to the ECHR. The latest issue of the Human Rights Law Review (vol. 10 , no. 4 , 2010) includes:

* Thérèse Murphy and Gearóid Ó Cuinn, 'Works in Progress: New Technologies and the European Court of Human Rights':

A field—new technologies and human rights or, more broadly, law and technology—is in the process of being framed. Should the European Court of Human Rights be seen as part of that process? To find out, we searched the Court's case law using HUDOC, a database on the Council of Europe website which contains both judgments and admissibility decisions. We entered 155 keywords, all in English, and in this article we report and analyse what we found. The overall conclusion is twofold: first, it is too early to attempt a complete characterisation of the Court's position on new technologies; and second, the Court is however ‘one to watch’.
The just published latest edition of the Inter-American and European Human Rights Journal (vol. 2, no. 1-2, 2009), a bilingual English/Spanish-language journal, includes:

* Dirk Voorhoof, 'Freedom of Expression under the European Human Rights System'
* Giovanni Bonello, 'Evidentiary Rules of the ECHR in Proceedings Relating to Articles 2, 3 and 14 - A Critique'
* Egbert Myjer and Peter Kempees, 'Notes on Reparations under the European Human Rights System'
* Laurence Burgorgue-Larsen, 'Interim Measures in the European Convention System of Protection of Human Rights'
