      Comments Off on Publications of the Council of Europe: Human Rights handbooks

The Council of Europe publishes Human Rights handbooks: Practical guides to the implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights.

These handbooks are written by experts in the freedom-of-expressionfield, and each guide deals with one aspect of the European Convention on Human Rights, or its Protocols. For example: among the total of fourteen handbooks there are (PDF) guides on “Freedom of expression”, “The right to a fair trial” and “Freedom of thought, conscience and religion”.

 

These handbooks are intended as a guideline to how particular articles of the European Convention on Human Rights have been applied and interpreted by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
