Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a summary about Immunities and the right of access to court under Article 6 of the European convention on human rights . The present work distinguishes between international immunities (i.e. immunities which are granted by domestic courts in order to fulfil obligations under public international law such as State immunity) and domestic immunities (i.e. those immunities which are granted to legal bodies or persons at the domestic level such as Members of Parliament). Whether the immunity in question serves a legitimate aim has to be considered in a general way.

Keywords: Article 6; domestic immunities; European; human rights; international immunities; public international law
