Author: Mel Cousins

The European Convention on Human Rights and the case law of the European Court of Human Rights are of increasing importance in the area of social security. This book provides a practical guide to the social security issues which have been considered by the Court of Human Rights, and gives an overview of how these have been analyzed by the Court. In addition, examples are given as to how the provisions of the Convention have been interpreted by a range of national courts. Issues examined include: who can be considered a "victim of a violation" of a right under the Convention in order to bring a claim before the Court and the time limit for bringing a claim --- the right to property (or possessions) --- the right to life, protective rights as to inhuman or degrading treatment, and prohibition of slavery and forced labor --- the extensive case law concerning the right to a fair hearing and the much more limited case law on the right to an effective remedy --- the right to respect for private and family life, home, and correspondence; and the related right to marry and found a family --- freedom of thought, of conscience, of religion, of expression, and of association --- the non-discrimination clause of the Convention --- issues concerning residence and nationality, including liberty of movement and freedom to choose one's residence --- the developing relationship between the European Convention on Human Rights and EU law and the extent to which developments in one area of law influence those of the other
