On 21 November 2013, Oxford University Press published the 'The Concept of the Rule of Law and the European Court of Human Rights'. Geranne Lautenbach wrote this book on the basis of her thesis, which she defended on 27 January 2012.
In 'The Concept of the Rule of Law and the European Court of Human Rights', Geranne Lautenbach, a Junior Associate at NautaDutilh and an associate to the University of Amsterdam, analyses the case law of the European of Court Human Rights relevant to the rule of law concept. In her book, she first analyses the application of this concept in the national legal systems of the United Kingdom, Germany and France, as well as in legal theory. She proceeds to analyse the case law of the European Court of Human Rights, relevant to the interpretation of the concept of the rule of law, structured on the basis of the proposed tenets of the concept: Legality, access to the court, protection of human rights and democracy. In her book she advocates that the concept of the rule of law as it emerges from the case law of the European Court of Human Rights provides a solid basis for developing the rule of law concept in general international law.
