The Interpretation and Application of the European Convention of Human Rights: Legal and Practical Implications, the aim is to offer a two-pronged approach on the effect that the ECHR has in the field of human rights as well as in other areas of international law.
The first part explores general and theoretical aspects of the application of the ECHR, such as provisional apllication, norm-conflict resolution, the interplay between human rights and occupation law. The second Part, building on the research and conclusions of the first Part, examines the amphidromous relationship of the ECHR with other areas of law. Since no branch of international law exists in "clinical isolation", this Part analyses the effects that the ECHR has on and is recipient of, from a variety of diverse areas of law such as law of the sea, investment law and rights of indigenous peoples.
