On Wednesday 14 June 2023, the Human Rights Law Centre (HRLC) of the University of Nottingham is hosting a book launch for the fifth edition of the textbook 'Law of the European Convention on Human Rights', co-authored by David Harris (Emeritus Professor at the University of Nottingham), Michael O'Boyle (Former Deputy Registrar at the European Court of Human Rights), Ed Bates (Associate Professor at the University of Leicester) and Carla M. Buckley (International Human Rights Lawyer).
Here is a short description of the event:
''The Human Rights Law Centre (HRLC) will be hosting the launch of the latest edition of 'Law of the European Convention on Human Rights', published with OUP. This event will take place from 2 to 4pm UK time (BST) in the University of Nottingham's Monica Partridge Building (Room C14) and online via MS Teams on Wednesday 14 June 2023.
To celebrate the launch of the new edition of this seminal text, the HRLC will be joined by Zoë Bryanston-Cross (Registry, Council of Europe) and Krešimir Kamber (Registry, Council of Europe) to discuss the evolution of the European Convention on Human Rights and its impact on human rights law in Europe and beyond. The discussion will also delve into the challenges facing the European Court of Human Rights.
The event will be chaired by Sangeeta Shah, Professor of International Law and Human Rights and HRLC Co-Director.
The first edition of Law of the European Convention on Human Rights was co-authored by Emeritus Professor David Harris, Mr Michael O’Boyle and Professor Colin Warbrick and published in 1995. It quickly gained recognition as the authoritative text in the area. This new fifth edition – published 28 years later - provides a fully updated, rigorous and comprehensive analysis of the work of the European Court of Human Rights and the rights protected by the ECHR.
The latest edition is co-authored by former HRLC Co-director and Founder, Emeritus Professor David Harris, Mr Michael O’Boyle (former Deputy Registrar of the European Court of Human Rights), Dr Ed Bates (University of Leicester) and Ms Carla M Buckley (International Human Rights Lawyer). They were joined by Krešimer Kamber, Zoë Bryanston-Cross, Peter Cumper and Heather Green.
Whether attending in person or online, this is a great opportunity to learn from some of the leading experts in the field of human rights law and to celebrate the launch of this important new edition.''
