Informed decision-making: the comparative endeavours of the Strasbourg Court

INFORMED DECISION-MAKING: THE COMPARATIVE ENDEAVOURS OF THE STRASBOURG COURT

Kanstantsin Dzehtsiarou and Vasily Lukashevich

Abstract

The article explores the use of comparative surveys in judgments of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). It argues that the inclusion of a comparative survey serves an informational purpose that may increase the substantive legitimacy of ECtHR rulings. The article aims to provide a broad, however preliminary account of the use of comparative data by focusing on a number of pertinent doctrinal, methodological, and practical issues.

Keywords: comparative law; decision-making process; European Court of Human Rights; interpretation; judicial reasoning
