Human Rights Imperialists: The Extraterritorial Application of the European Convention on Human Rights

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Conall Mallory


Full text is not currently available for this publication.


This book explores the challenges posed by the extraterritorial application of the European Convention on Human Rights. It does so by reflecting on how the issue has been approached by the primary interpreters of the treaty: the Strasbourg Court, state parties and national courts. This is achieved through a detailed engagement with the previous jurisprudence on the Convention’s extraterritorial application, and a particular focus on the activities of British authorities and judges during and after the Iraq War (2003). The analysis enables a clear understanding of how the law has developed and explores possible solutions to the challenge.
