'Written in German, this completely revised third edition of the Handbook provides an up-to-date and comprehensive presentation of the European Convention and European Court of Human Rights. It offers quick and reliable answers to specific questions about the Convention’s substantial guarantees and the often complex procedures and manifold institutional aspects of the Court. Many cross-references are included to highlight the context, with frequent overviews summarising important principles of the Strasbourg case-law. Publication of the Handbook in 2020 coincides with the 70th anniversary of the Convention, providing readers with an invaluable overall assessment of the world’s most important international human rights court.
The author served for nine years as a judge at the Court, including three years as Section President.'
