The European Court of Human Rights and the rights of marginalised individuals and minorities in national context

psychogiopoulou_anagnostouThis volume explores the role of the ECtHR  in  protecting marginalised individuals and minorities. What factors and conditions have led growing numbers of such individuals and minorities to pursue their rights and freedoms in front of the ECtHR and how has the latter responded to these? Does the Convention and the jurisprudence of the Strasbourg Court enhance the protection of vulnerable groups and expand their rights? Or do they mainly tend to fill in relatively minor gaps or occasional lapses in national rights guarantees? Comprising  a  set  of  eight  country-based  case  studies,  this  volume examines litigation  on  behalf  of marginalised  individuals  and minorities, and  the  relevant  ECtHR  jurisprudence  across the following countries: Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, France, Italy, Turkey and the UK.
