The book covers the strengthening of the Court's capacities to meet the challenge of chronic failures of protection at the domestic level; its progressive approach to "qualified" rights, including privacy and family life, freedoms of speech, assembly, the press, conscience, and religion; the robust enforcement of "absolute" rights, including the prohibition of torture and inhuman treatment; and the Court's aim to render justice to all people that come under its jurisdiction, even non-citizens who live - and whose rights are violated - beyond Europe. It explains how the European Court of Human Rights has become one of the most active and important advocates for human rights in the world, while helping to construct a nascent cosmopolitan constitution in Europe.
