Chapter Summary

The European Convention on Human Rights is widely recognised to be a transnational regime of rights review that has achieved a kind of authority and jurisdiction that is unique in the world. An instrumental role in its post-World War II evolution has been played by its judicial arm, the European Court of Human Rights. This volume explores the role and impact of the ECtHR in protecting marginalised individuals and minorities. It examines litigation on behalf of marginalised individuals and minorities, and the relevant ECtHR jurisprudence across eight countries: Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, the UK, France, Germany, Austria, and Italy. The first part of this introductory chapter discusses the analytical assumptions and methodological considerations of this study. The next section discusses litigation patterns regarding marginalised individuals and minorities and the ECtHR jurisprudence in response to the petitions it has reviewed. The last part provides an overview of the volume.

Keywords: ECtHR; Human Rights; World War II
