Our best read blog posts in 2013

1. Free speech, politics and animal rights 

Probably our best read piece because our dog Frits is featuring (Frits says hi to all of you). The post elaborates on the ECtHR's Grand Chamber judgment in the case of Animal Defenders International v. the United Kingdom and concerns the (non) possibility to advertise on TV or radio.


In this post Paul Johnson examines the development of anti-propaganda laws in the Russian Federation. He considers the existence and enforcement of these laws in relation to the existing case law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). 



3. Russian punk band Pussy Riot goes to Strasbourg: a song in Major or Minor?

Svetlana Huntley writes about the trial of the members of  the Russian punk group Pussy Riot and their complaint to the European Court of Human Rights.



This blog post argues that judging on human rights should not be seen as a top down process from Strasbourg, but rather needs a bottom up approach of national judges.



5. Why Judges in Europe Need To Work Together

David Ordóñez-Solís observes that in a new technological world and in a European context judges need to network so they can do a better job. 




Jeroen Chorus comparises the role of the principle of subsidiarity in the law of the European Union and in the European human rights law leads up to the following remark.
