Research handbook on human rights and humanitarian law

This chapter focuses on the process of transformation of proportionality, from a tool designed to operate in the State-individual relationship, to one which applies to the overall process of values-balancing underlying the dynamics of human rights in contemporary international law. This process willl be observed through a study of proportionality in the European convention on human rights, probably the most integrated system of human rights protection established thus far, and one which can serve as a model for the development of a more comprehensive system of protection.
