Professor Bill Bowring

Dr Anton Burkov presents some of the findings of his PhD research on the impact of the ECHR on Russian courts, carried out while at Cambridge University in England.

The full results have very recently been published in Russian by Wolters-Kluwer, and its central propositions will shortly appear in English :

Burkov A., “The European Convention for Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms in the Russian Legal System” in The European Convention for Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms in Central and Eastern Europe. (Utrecht: Eleven International Publishing.)

Burkov is quite right that the main responsibility for seeing to it that Russian judges at all levels take proper account of the ECHR and its jurisprudence, which are after all part of the domestic legal system of the Russian Federation since 1998, rests on the advocate who appear and argue before the courts. The more they raise Convention issues, the more the judges will respond.

See the full article Impact of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms on the Russian Legal System by Dr. Anton Burkov in Impact of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms on the Russian Legal System by Dr. Anton Burkov in PDF.
