Latvia offers an excellent point of departure for evaluating the influence of international human rights law through the European Convention on Human Rights on a sovereign state that has established itself as a democratic political system in the decline of the 20th century. This book explores the impact of the Convention on the domestic implementation of human rights provisions by studying the case law of the Constitutional Court and the Supreme Court, including the doctrinal concepts applied by these courts. The Convention machinery itself is in need of reforms, therefore an evaluation of both positive and negative effects following from Latvia’s case against this background completes the study. Unavoidable complementary issues are findings about the consequences ensuing from prioritisation of the Convention among other treaties and about internationalisation of domestic law. (Less)
