Event Information

The Human Rights Law Centre (HRLC) is delighted to invite you to the launch of the latest edition of 'Law of the European Convention on Human Rights', published with OUP. This event will take place from 14:00 - 16:00 UK time (BST) in the University of Nottingham's Monica Partridge Building (Room E07) and online via MS Teams on Wednesday 14 June 2023.

To celebrate the launch of the new edition of this seminal text, the HRLC will host a roundtable discussion of key issues arising from the evolution of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the challenges facing the European Court of Human Rights:

  • 'UK withdrawal from the ECHR - from taboo (1995) to tenable (2023)' - Dr Ed Bates, University of Leicester
  • 'Article 46 of the Convention, a portal to rights in real-time' - Zoë Bryanston-Cross, Registry, Council of Europe
  • 'Reflections on the early days of Russian exclusion from the ECHR' - Dr Krešimir Kamber, Registry, Council of Europe

The event will be chaired by Sangeeta Shah, Professor of International Law and Human Rights and HRLC Co-Director.

The discussion will be followed by a drinks reception.

More Information

The first edition of Law of the European Convention on Human Rights was co-authored by Emeritus Professor David Harris, Mr Michael O’Boyle and Professor Colin Warbrick and published in 1995. It quickly gained recognition as the authoritative text in the area. This new fifth edition – published 28 years later - provides a fully updated, rigorous and comprehensive analysis of the work of the European Court of Human Rights and the rights protected by the ECHR.

The latest edition is co-authored by former HRLC Co-director and Founder, Emeritus Professor David Harris, Mr Michael O’Boyle (former Deputy Registrar of the European Court of Human Rights), Dr Ed Bates (University of Leicester) and Ms Carla M Buckley (International Human Rights Lawyer). They were joined by Krešimer Kamber, Zoë Bryanston-Cross, Peter Cumper and Heather Green.

Whether attending in person or online, this is a great opportunity to learn from some of the leading experts in the field of human rights law and to celebrate the launch of this important new edition.
