Introductory Note to the European Court of Human Rights (GC): Şahin v. Turkey

Abstract

This note introduces a Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights decision which considered whether disparate outcomes from different court systems of the same state evaluating the same set of facts constituted a violation of the European Convention’s right to a fair hearing. While discussion of micro level Turkish procedural issues is required, the Şahin case also provides broader, macro lessons on the legitimacy of military court decisions.
