Upcoming Liber Amicorum Judge Rozakis

Bruylant Publishers has announced that it will publish, in November, a liber amicorum dedicated to the retiring Greek judge Rozakis. The bilingual book has been edited by Dean Spielmann, Marialena Tsirli and Panayotis Voyatzis and is entitled 'La Convention européenne des droits de l’homme, un instrument vivant / The European Convention on Human Rights, a living instrument'. It's theme is the living instrument doctrine. This is the abstract:

Christos Rozakis served the European Court and the former Commission of Human Rights for twenty-four years, first as a member of the Commission and later as a judge and Vice-President of the Court. On the occasion of his retirement, his colleagues, friends and collaborators wish to express their affection for him and honour his exceptional contribution to the construction of a European system for the protection of human rights.

The theme chosen for this compilation of essays is the European Convention as a “living instrument” intended to be interpreted in the light of present-day conditions. This is how Christos Rozakis approached the text of the Convention during his career in Strasbourg. This approach is based on an evolutive interpretation of the articles of the Convention aimed at enhancing the effectiveness of human rights in modern European society.

The variety of issues linked to the dynamic method of interpretation of the Convention is reflected in the topics covered by the authors of the different contributions to this book. These original contributions, each dealing with an issue of topical interest, constitute a testimony to this person who has contributed in such an important way to the influence of the jurisprudence of the European Court.
