Chapter Summary

The front matter section of the book The Legal Culture of the European Court of Human Rights contains the table of contents and preface. The book starts with a brief outline of the history of the European Court of Human Rights, and then paints a picture of its people and the work inside. The individual differences of the judges are described and the interdynamics, forming the legal culture, explained. The description of the perceived legal culture of the judges is supported by a combined empirical and statistical study of the judgments. These judgments concern the protection of family and privacy, the right to freedom of religion and the right to freedom of expression. The book shows us the judges' voting behaviour through applying a three-step test, from a general to a more detailed approach. The evaluation of voting supports the claim of harmony.

Keywords: European Court of Human Rights; judges' voting behaviour; legal culture; right to freedom of expression; right to freedom of religion
