Chapter Summary

This chapter predicts how that Convention will come to be viewed and applied in the domestic courts of Iceland, Norway and Denmark. The gist of the discussion concerns conventions or treaties which have been ratified but not incorporated into domestic law. In order to examine the status of ratified treaties, the following will be considered: (1) the comments of domestic courts on the influence of such treaties; (2) some theory on the influence of such treaties; (3) the application of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) before it was incorporated; (4) the application of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and to some degree the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) and other UN human rights conventions in domestic courts; and (5) the comments of governments concerning especially the ICCPR.
