After a wonderful conference in snowy Iceland, I am back in Utrecht with an update of relevant new ECHR-related literature. The newest few issues of the European Human Rights Law Review include a number of articles on the ECHR. In no. 6 of 2013:

* J. Polakiewicz, 'EU law and the ECHR: will the European Union's accession square the circle?'', pp. 592-605.
