Chapter Summary

With the aim of investigating whether European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) jurisprudence enhances rights protection in Greece, in particular, the rights and liberties of individuals from minorities and other vulnerable groups, this chapter is structured as follows. Part 2 offers a brief account of the domestic judicial mechanisms of human rights review and examines the status the Convention has assumed in the national legal order and the interest it has generated in the academic and legal community. Focus then shifts in Part 3 to litigation patterns in Strasbourg with due attention ascribed to the rights claims raised by applicants from marginalised groups. This section also examines whether litigation before the ECtHR forms part of wider strategies in the pursuit of specific public policy reform goals. The final section offers concluding remarks which explore whether ECtHR case law strongly affects the domestic judicial stance.
