This introductory chapter presents and elaborates on the main theme of the book – the domestic implementation of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) judgments – and highlights its contribution in the existing body of scholarly research. In advancing an interdisciplinary perspective into the subject, it extends beyond the predominantly legal genre of scholarship to explore the institutional actors involved in it, as a few studies have began to do over the past couple of years. At the same time, this chapter also discusses the need for a for a multifaceted approach that further takes into account and explores the political context and the societal dynamics that influence domestic implementation. The next part of this introductory chapter depicts the basic contours of the Convention's institutional evolution and its enforcement machinery. The third part expounds the methodological and analytical considerations guiding the present set of studies, while the last two parts elaborate on and provide an overview of the two main sections of the book that examine a) the implementation responses of, and interactions among different institutional and governmental actors, and b) the patterns of legal and political mobilisation to pursue different minority-related rights claims vis-à-vis states.
