The eighth edition of Jacobs, White and Ovey: The European Convention on Human Rights is a clear and concise companion to this increasingly important and extensive area of the law.

The authors examine each of the Convention rights in turn, explore the pivotal cases in each area and examine the principles that underpin the Court’s decisions.

The focus on the European Convention itself, rather than its implementation in any one member state, makes this book essential reading for all students looking for a concise yet authoritative overview of the work of the Strasbourg Court.
