Constituting Europe: The European Court of Human Rights in a National, European and Global Context.

Edited by Andreas Føllesdal, Birgit Peters and Geir Ulfstein.

(Cambridge University Press)

Andreas Føllesdal, Birgit Peters and Geir Ulfstein (members of the MultiRights' team) have edited one more volume of the prestigious Cambridge University Press new series Studies on Human Rights Conventions: Constituting Europe: The European Court of Human Rights in a National, European and Global Context. 

At fifty, the European Court of Human Rights finds itself in a new institutional setting. With the EU joining the European Convention on Human Rights in the near future, and the Court increasingly having to address the responsibility of states in UN-lead military operations, the Court faces important challenges at the national, European and international levels.

In light of recent reform discussions, this volume addresses the multi-level relations of the Court by drawing on existing debates, pointing to current deficits and highlighting the need for further improvements.
