Human rights are the subject of enduring interest, engagement and controversy both in the academic and public domain. Absolute human rights provoke such interest and controversy even more intensely. Yet the interest and controversy triggered has not been equated with extensive and critically engaged legal scholarship on the meaning and implications of absoluteness as a characteristic of human rights, and how this informs the contours of the right enshrined in Article 3 of the ECHR. The book will offer a persuasive theoretical framework for the delimitation of absolute rights in a way which remains faithful to their absolute nature. It aims to counter broad-brush accounts of the delimitation of absolute rights and provide an appropriately nuanced and intellectually honest account of the theoretical foundations, and the abstract and concrete challenges, of such delimitation. In addition, the book will encompass a rigorous, methodical and theoretically engaged legal analysis of the character and scope of Article 3 of the ECHR, pursued in light of this framework. It will provide the tools for engaging in, and critically assessing, the delimitation of an absolute right with greater clarity and coherence, while also offering a much-needed defence for the continued recognition of the non-displaceable character of this fundamental – but contested – human right.
