New book on ECtHR case law and death penalty released
A new book that aims to assist lawyers from the member states of the Council of Europe deal with extradition or deportation cases when there is a risk of the death penalty being imposed in third countries or of extrajudicial execution has been published.
Compendium of case law of the European Court of Human Rights on the death penalty and extrajudicial execution, by Jeremy McBride, enables legal professionals from countries where the death penalty still exists to develop arguments based upon the reasoning of the case law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). It contains relevant extracts from the court’s case law structured in a user-friendly way.
Mr McBride is a barrister at Monckton Chambers, London, who specialises in cases before the ECtHR and the United Nations Human Rights Committee.
He is president of the Expert Council on NGO Law of the Council of Europe’s Conference of International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs), a former member and chair of the Scientific Committee of the European Union’s Fundamental Rights Agency, and co-founder and chair of the International Centre for the Legal Protection of Human Rights (INTERIGHTS).
