On Wednesday 21 February 2024, from 17:30 to 19:00 CET, the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights of Oxford University is hosting a book launch for the new book 'Positive Obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights', authored by Vladislava Stoyanova (Associate Professor of Public International Law at the Faculty of Law, Lund University) and published with Oxford University Press. The event will be joined by Sandy Steel (Professor of Law and Philosophy of Law in the Faculty of Law at Oxford University), Helen Mountfield KC (Principal of Mansfield College and Barrister at Matrix Chambers) and Ed Bates (Associate Professor at the University of Leicester). The event will be chaired by Başak Çalı (Head of Research at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights and professor of International Law in the Faculty of Law at the University of Oxford).
Here is a short description of the book:
'Positive Obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights provides novel insight into the elements underlying a state's responsibility to fulfil positive obligations and offers the first examination of the conceptual hurdles of applying positive human rights obligations extraterritorially. It further clarifies European Court of Human Rights doctrine to empower better reasoning and outcomes across the diverse fields in which positive obligations apply. It is essential reading for academics, legal practitioners, and policymakers working across the diverse fields in which positive human rights obligations may apply.'
