European human rights law is a body of law which has emerged from the provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights. Besides the Convention, its sources also encompass the soft-law of the Council of Europe and recently the ever growing practice of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. However, the most significant and by far the most abundant among its sources is the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights, seated in Strasbourg. The jurisprudence of the Court constitutes the core substance of this volume. Its principal purpose is to supply basic information on  European human rights law, as developed by the Court in Strasbourg, to students and practitioners needing an introduction to it. The stage of development, as well as the importance of  European human rights law in everyday life are evident, as confirmed  by the fact that it took almost three hundred pages to perform such a modest task.

"This book goes far beyond its modest aim, namely that of serving as an introduction for students and practitioners. In reality, it is an important monograph which felicitously combines an explanation of the Court’s functioning with a presentation of its case-law.”

Dean Spielmann                                                                               
President of the European Court of Human Rights

“Dragoljub Popovic has managed to link judiciously his scholarship expertise to his analytical insights of a practicing judge to the Court. This he has done in an indeed impressive manner: his meticulous exegesis is uncannily clear and simple, but never simplifying.”
