Si vis pacem, para bellum : application of the European Convention on Human Rights in situations of armed conflicts
The right to life under Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights
Oisterwijk : Wolf Legal Publisher, 2017
Cases involving the application of the European Court on Human Rights to situations of armed conflict represent a sad branch of the Court's case-law, but they are becoming increasingly numerous. Present-day conditions dictate that the Court must prepare for war, or at least define its position in respect of cases that emanate from war-like situations, so as to lay the foundations for peace and respect for human rights. What is needed is a coherent view on the meaning of the Convention in situations of armed conflict.
