This book explains the origins, structure and functioning of the European Convention on Human Rights, and its position in the overall system of protection of human rights in Europe. It discusses and analyses the composition, functions and procedure of the Court of Human Rights. It clarifies the scope of each of the rights and freedoms laid down by the Convention by reference to the case law of the Court.

It also explains the status and impact of the convention in Swedish law and in the law of the European Union. It provides a detailed guide to research sources and methodology for those wishing to investigate human rights issues under the convention in more detail. The book is written primarily for students of public law, international law and political science, but it can also be of interest to practicing lawyers and others who wish a clear and concise introduction to the Convention.
