Chapter Summary

This index of the book titled Personal Freedom through Human Rights Law? Autonomy, Identity and Integrity under the European Convention on Human Rights presents the list of terms and concepts that occur in the book. A postmodernist version of the self as self-creating and potentially ever-changing, has more in common with the self-determining liberal individual than one may initially think. The purpose of the book is to see how all the varieties of selfhood link to the European Court of Human Rights' (ECtHR) case law by reference to the understandings of personal freedom that are presented there. The developing jurisprudence of Article 8s protection for ones private life by the ECtHR shows that it protects against unwanted intrusions into peoples private lives in a traditional sense of guarding a persons private space.

Keywords: European Convention on Human Rights; European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR); personal freedom
