22 mai 2012 - Cour eur. dr. h., Gde Ch., Scoppola (n° 3) c. Italie

For many years, prisoner voting rights issue is poisoning relations between European Court of Human Rights and United-Kingdom. In a case involving Italy, this issue has arisen once again in the European courtroom. Concerned with preserving European authority, the Grand Chamber did not have much room for manoeuvre : between apparent assertiveness and spirit of conciliation. However, and in spite of significant concessions, some of which against court’s case law, the British intransigence still persists. This conflict is testing Court’s strategies in the eye of the storm. And, whatever the outcome, it will also affect the European future.
