“Equivalent Protection”, Veronika Bílková (IIR, Czech Republic)

Veronika Bílková has published an article in the Max Planck Encyclopedia of International Procedural Law covering Equivalent Protection. The doctrine of equivalent protection, inspired by the Solange decisions of the GFCC, was introduced to the case-law of the ECommHR in the early 1990s and then taken over by the ECtHR at the end of the same decade.
