Abstract

This paper summarises the main features of the engagement of the European Commission and Court of Human Rights with the conflict in Northern Ireland before turning to how these bodies have engaged with the conflict in Turkey. The latter section cross-refers to the former where appropriate and the paper concludes with some brief general conclusions regarding the ability of the European Convention on Human Rights to play a significant role during times of serious non-international conflicts. A slightly revised and updated version of the paper will appear in the ICLQ in 2017.

Keywords: Northern Ireland, Turkey, conflict, European Convention on Human Rights
