Le droit international général, outil de développement de la Cour européenne des droits de l'homme

Abstract : The European Court of Human Rights has consistently applied general international law to the ECHR. However, it did so without a clear theory as to how to solve the inherent tensions between the interpretations derived from international law and the objectives specific to the ECHR. The Court has employed various methods : interpretation according to the dominant views within international law, use of emerging international principles to increase its institutional powers, prioritisation of human rights principles within international law, and finally transformation of international law according to how it has been incorporated in the Court’s case-law. All these approaches enable a reinforcement of the Court as a judicial institution.They all increase the Court’s capacity to influence the legal policies of the Council of Europe member States.
