Schmahl & Breuer: The Council of Europe: Its Laws and Policies

Stefanie Schmahl (Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg – Law) & Marten Breuer (Universität Konstanz – Law) have published The Council of Europe: Its Laws and Policies (Oxford Univ. Press 2017). The table of contents is here. Here’s the abstract:

The Council of Europe, of which all European States are members, plays a pivotal role in the promotion and protection of human rights, democracy, and the rule of law in Europe. Bringing together specialist scholars and practitioners, The Council of Europe: Its Laws and Policies offers profound insights into the functioning of the organization. The organization’s primary and secondary law, its institutional structure, and its far-reaching fields of activities are comprehensively and systematically analysed. This volume investigates the impact of the Council’s activities within the national legal systems of the Member States and the dense web of relationships between the Council of Europe and other international organisations. An important reference work on one of the most influential organizations in Europe, the book concludes that the Council of Europe has played a considerable role in the constitutionalization process of regional public international law.
