New Book on Immigrants and the European Court of Human Rights

Amanda Spalding of Canterbury Christ Church University, in the United Kingdom, has published the new book The Treatment of Immigrants in the European Court of Human Rights. Moving Beyond Criminalisation, with Hart Publishing. This is the abstract:

"This book looks at how the European Court of Human Rights has addressed the question of immigration. As immigration in Europe has increased, so has its criminalisation. This is a multi-faceted phenomenon, with criminal justice and harsh use of immigration measures becoming more and more entwined. This book asks: how has the European Court of Human Rights responded? Drawing on case law from across the spectrum of rights, it will show how effective it has been in countering detention and deportation, if at all. This makes an original contribution to growing focus on 'crimmigration'."
