Former European Court of Human Rights Judge Joins the ECLJ

By Grégor Puppinck1579796672403

In the recent months, the ACLJ’s European affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), has proposed to several distinguished scholars and lawyers to become “Associate research fellow” with the ECLJ.

Today, Professor Boštjan M. Zupančič, a former judge and President of the Third Chamber at the European Court of Human Rights, agreed to join us. He is the longest-serving judge in Strasbourg, from 1998 to 2016. He was previously a judge at the Constitutional Court of Slovenia and vice-chair of the U.N. Committee against Torture (Geneva). He is also a distinguished scholar, a graduate from Harvard School of Law and a Professor in various universities.

Mr. Zupancic is well known for his intellectual integrity. He is an original thinker, not afraid to confront the dominant contemporary ideas and powers, such as the pro-abortion discourse.

He is the author of numerous articles and several books. The last one is entitled On the European Court of Human Rights: An Insider’s Retrospective (1998-2016), Eleven International Publishing, 2019.

Recently, he gave an exceptional interview to the ECLJ describing, in an unprecedented manner, his experience at the Court of Strasbourg.

Prof. Boštjan M. Zupančič joins M. Javier Borrego, also former judge at the European Court of Human Rights, who became an associate research fellow with the ECLJ in 2016, before becoming a judge at the Spanish Supreme Court.
