IRIS Themes 3

Using a systematic approach, the book guides the reader through the European Court of Human Rights case-law on freedom of expression and media freedom, offering a valuable and quick reference tool for orientating researchers and practitioners in the understanding of the steadily growing ECHR jurisprudence on Article 10.

The book contains the summaries of over 240 judgements and decisions adopted by the Court between 1994 and 2015. Each case is categorized through the use of key-words and it includes the link to the direct source contained in HUDOC, the Court’s online case-law database. The table at the beginning of the volume provides a synthetic overview of the cases included, keywords and outcomes for each case.

The introduction of the volume by Dirk Voorhoof highlights trends and developments in the European Court of Human Rights’ case-law on Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights in the period 1994-2015.

The book is the third publication within the IRIS Themes series, released by IRIS, the Legal Observations of the European Audiovisual Observatory.
