Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter gives an overview of concepts of subsequent chapters covered in the book on "The European Human Rights Culture - A Paradox of Human Rights Protection in Europe?" This book is located in the fields of comparative law and European law. In an original and novel perspective, this book analyses through first hand interviews with members of the European judiciary the judicial perspective on the European human rights culture and sets this in context to the political dimension of the term. The book aims at understanding the interaction between two Courts by also looking at possible fields of rivalry, and suggests solutions to this possible conflict of two overlapping European jurisdictions on human rights. This book employs a comparative approach between the CJEU and the ECtHR. Further, the political level developing European human rights is added and discussed critically with its meaning for European human rights culture.

Keywords: CJEU; ECtHR; European human culture
