New Academic and Online ECHR Articles and Comments

I am happy to announce that my article 'The Pilot Judgment Procedure at the European Court of Human Rights: Possibilities and Challenges', which was published in 2009 in the Greek legal journal Nomiko Vima, has now been translated into Ukrainian and re-published in the Ukrainian journal European Law (No. 1-2, 2013, pp. 84-100). Hopefully that will make it more accessible (the weblink works only intermittently it seems) and useful to academics and practitioners there, although of course in the meantime many new developments have taken place at the Court in this regard.

And then for some other updates on recent ECHR-related writings: the latest issue of the Zeitschrift für ausländisches öffentliches Recht und Völkerrecht (Vol. 73, no. 3, 2013) includes an article written by Helen Keller and Cedric Marti titled ‘Interim relief compared: Use of interim measures by the UN Human Rights Committee and the European Court of Human Rights’.

The most recent issue of the Nordic Journal of International Law (Vol. 82, no. 3, 2013) includes an article written by Maria Eriksson titled ‘The Prevention of Human Trafficking – Regulating Domestic Criminal Legislation through the European Convention on Human Rights’.

On Strasbourg Observers, Ronan Ó Fathaigh and Dirk Voorhoof have written a case comment entitled ‘Newspaper Editor Criminally Liable for Senator’s Op-Ed, But Prison SentenceViolated Article 10: Belpietro v. Italy’

Finally, a special issue of the Utrecht Law Review (vol. 9, issue 4, September 2013, free and open access!) is dedicated to 'Law Should Govern: Aspiring General Principles for Transnational Criminal Justice' and includes a number of articles pertaining to the ECHR:
