(p.515) 24 Protecting the Marginalized?
Judges, Transition, and Human Rights

Colin Harvey

Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at the potential role of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in protecting the rights of marginalized individuals and groups. It explains the concept of human rights law and discusses attitudes towards human rights and their use in protecting vulnerable and marginalized groups. It suggests that human rights law should have an express and declared purpose, and this must be intrinsically linked to addressing the needs of vulnerable and marginalized individuals and groups.

Keywords:   marginalized individuals, ECHR, human rights law, legal protection, human rights courts, Europe
