Course Content

This course aims to introduce and evaluate the recent Turkish experience as a participant of the Council of Europe human rights regime, with emphasis on the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), the sole control organ of the system presently. The course discusses, to begin with, human rights under international law and, in particular, the issue of the international protection of human rights, in turn moving on to the European human rights regime through establishment and the subsequent development. The main thrust of the course then becomes the case law of the ECHR, offering open-ended discussion of several cases, which involve, or of relevance to, Turkey.
