The ECHR blog, maintained by Antoine Buyse, of the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights, at the University of Utrecht, has just published a list of recent academic publications on the European Convention on Human Rights, exploring issues such as:

– the ability of the Court to effect domestic judicial reforms;
– how the Court uses in its case non-binding documents from the Council of Europe;
– the applicability of thr ECHR to the crime of genocide;
– the ability of the Grand Chamber to rehear a case after a Chamber judgment;
– the Dutch Forced Marriage Prevention Act, which aims to prevent family reunification of so-called child bribes with their husbands; this raises the question of whether the right to privacy and the right against degranding and inhumane treatment are breaches where a family reunification application is denied on the above grounds.
