A Review of Russia and European Human-Rights Law. The Rise of the Civilizational Argument / Ed. by L. Mälksoo. Leiden ; Boston : Brill Nijhoff, 2014
Abstract What if not only Russians look through “the window to Europe” opened by Peter the Great? What if Europeans look through the same window from the other side? This new book by Lauri Malksoo definitely answers this question. It addresses issues of governmental interpretation of human rights, implementation of the rulings of the European Court of Human Rights in the context of Russian reality, and the influence of the Russian Orthodox Church on domestic social and political thought.
