An updated and significantly expanded edition of a work that has, for over twenty years, provided a detailed introduction to the mechanisms and case law operating within the Council of Europe that seek to protect the rights of the individual. The book considers the impact that the European Convention on Human Rights has had on the lives of those within the twenty-six Member States of the Council of Europe by selectively analyzing those parts of its large and complex case law that give an insight into the development of European human rights.
