Collected Edition of the

The European Convention on Human Rights is undoubtedly the most concrete expression by the Member States of the Council of Europe of their profound belief in the values of democracy, peace & justice and, through them, respect for the rights & fundamental freedoms of persons living in our society. Although this instrument is over forty years old, it has evolved & continues to do so, not only through the case law of the European Commission & Court of Human Rights, but also through the addition of Protocols strengthening the rights & improving the protection mechanism. This revised edition of the 1987 Collected Texts gives lawyers & any other interested persons clear & up-to-date information on all these instruments & on the texts relating to the working of the bodies set up by the Convention. The basic instruments & texts contained in the 1994 Collected Texts (English & French) provide a vital tool for all those working for human rights in Europe.
