New Publications on the ECHR

Again, a number of new academic publications relating to the European Convention on Human Rights and the Court in Strasbourg. For a fuller overview of recent articles on human rights, from which this is just an ECHR-related excerpt, please consult the very useful monthly Online Contents, compiled by my documentation colleagues here at the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM).
