Research Update & PSA Conference Manchester

The fieldwork has been continuing apace – with Bulgaria, Turkey and the UK now completed and Ireland currently underway. It’s been interesting to travel to all these places and meet lots of interesting people with their own stories about the Court.

As for us, we’ll be at the PSA conference at the University of Manchester from the 7th to the 9th of April. We’ll be presenting the first comprehensive single-country analysis from the project. This paper on ‘The United Kingdom and the European Court of Human Rights: An elite perception analysis’ discusses why British elites support the European Court of Human Rights, how they perceive the influence of the court on their domain of activities and the different types of compliance that emerge in the UK when the Court condemns it with a human rights violation. The paper draws from original data collected during the fieldwork in the UK between May and December 2008.
