European Convention on Human Rights Act: Operation, Impact and Analysis

Cliona Kelly

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This is the first comprehensive analysis of the operation and impact of the Act. It will not only provide an extensive study of the contents of the Act itself but will also include analysis of the impact that the Act has had on litigation, politics and the realisation of rights in practice. This book serves not only then to illuminate the Act?s operation for practitioners and students, but also to identify mechanisms by which the ECHR Act 2003 might be used to bring about a real change in the enjoyment of Convention rights in Ireland. This book is primarily designed for the practitioner and will endeavour to illustrate the Act's operation. Comparison will be made to the operation of analogous provisions in the UK's Human Rights Act 1998 where appropriate. The book will also, however, be of interest to students, academics, policy makers and politicians who are concerned with the impact and operation of the Act
