Basak has prepared a policy paper titled ‘The Impact of European Law and Case Law on Shaping Democracy’, which outlines the different ways European Human Rights law and case law have had an impact on shaping democracy, and goes on to identify conceptual and institutional challenges to this. A copy of the paper is available online here.
The paper is part of the Council of Europe’s 6th Forum for the Future of Democracy, ‘Perspectives 2020 – Democracy in Europe: Principles and Challenges’, to be held in Yerevan on 19th and 20th October 2010. The Forum was established in 2005 and aims to strengthen democracy and political freedoms and is open to all member states, and civil society. It enables the sharing of ideas, information, examples of best practice, and discussion on possible future action.
