RightsCast: Article 18 of the European Convention on Human Rights

RightsCast hosts Centre Director Başak Çalı to discuss the history of Article 18 of the EHCR and whether it can speak to the rule of law crisis unfolding in Europe today.

Article 18 of the European Convention on Human Rights prohibits the restriction of rights for any other purpose than those for which they are prescribed. It aims to prevent the abuse of power by state authorities, or the restriction of rights for illegitimate purposes. In this episode, Prof. Başak Çalı and Dr Corina Heri join Daragh Murray to discuss the history of Article 18, the case law around it, and whether it can speak to the rule of law crisis unfolding in Europe today.
