New ECHR Readings

With the Court issuing its newest judgment today in a group of cases on British prisoner voting rights (violation found but judgment itself as sufficient just satisfaction, so no monetary award) the very short Strasbourg summer hiatus in issuing judgments - less than one and a half week - is already over. In preparation for a new season of judgments from the Court, here are a number of new and recent ECHR readings:

*  T. Schilling, 'On equal footing: the participation rights envisaged for the European Union after its accession to the European Convention on Human Rights', Human Rights Law Review, vol. 14, no. 2 (2014) pp. 197-229.

* C. Bezemek, 'Services exacted instead of compulsory military service: the structure of the "prohibition of forced or compulsory labour" according to article 4(2) of the ECHR', European Human Rights Law Review, no. 3 (2014)  pp. 263-271.

* L. Peroni, 'The European Court of Human Rights and intragroup religious diversity: a critical review', Chicago-Kent Law Review, vol. 89, no. 2 (2014) pp. 663-688.

* Koen Lemmens, 'Larvatus prodeo? Why Concealing the Face can be Incompatible with a European Conception of Human Rights', European Law Review, vol.39, no. 1 (2014), pp. 47 - 71. 

And finally, my older article on the pilot judgment procedure ('The pilot judgment procedure at the European Court of Human Rights: possibilities and challenges' - original can be downloaded on SSRN) has been translated into Ukrainian and has been published in the legal journal Law of Ukraine, no. 3 (2013) pp. 303-317.
