The ECHR and Domestic Courts

by | Nov 7, 2011

Reconciling domestic superior courts with the ECHR and the ECtHR: A Comparative Perspective prepared by Oxford Pro Bono Publico for the Commission on a Bill of Rights (November 2011)

In March 2011, the UK Government set up the Commission on a Bill of Rights, mandated to investigate the creation of a UK Bill of Rights and to examine the implementation of the country’s obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). This report by Oxford Pro Bono Publico seeks to assist the Commission in the fulfillment of its mandate by providing a comparative analysis of how States Parties to the ECHR have implemented their obligations under the Convention. Specifically, it examines the role of the ECHR within these domestic legal orders and considers how the domestic courts engage with the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).
