A new edited collection, Ireland and the European Convention on Human Rights: 60 Years and Beyond, has just been published by Bloomsbury. Edited by Suzanne Egan, Judy Walsh and myself, this collection explores 60 years of the ECHR in Ireland and the impact (or otherwise!) of the European Convention on Human Rights Act 2003 on the Irish legal system. This contribution provides expert analysis on a wide variety of areas, including: the operation and impact of the ECHR and ECHR Act 2003 in Ireland, the growing impact of the European Union Charter of Fundamental Rights and its relationship with the ECHR law in Ireland, the role of the ECHR in the private sphere, direct provision and the ECHR, immigration, gender recognition, socio-economic rights and public interest law and issues relating to access to justice. The preface and full table of contents for this edited collection can be accessed here: Preface & Table of Contents Ireland and the ECHR 60 Years and Beyond (with thanks to Bloomsbury for permission for this).
