Chapter Summary

This chapter provides summary of the book, which explores how in particular the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) perceives of the notion of human rights as indivisible, interrelated and interdependent. The examination illustrates that the Court has no rigid perception of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and its Protocols as belonging to a particular category of human rights. The notion of human rights as indivisible rights does have legal implications, and case law illustrates that judicial are bodies obliged or authorised to take into consideration the complexity of real life when making assessments of human rights compliance under the ECHR. The Courts case law and also case law from the ECSR brings to light the interconnectedness of the two sets of rights, and the question is what could or should be the legal and institutional consequences of this development if any.

Keywords: European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR); European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR); human rights
