Abstract

Legal consideration of extraterritorial obligations contained in the European Convention of Human Rights have largely developed in respect of military occupation or the custodial control of individuals. For a number of reasons situations involving transnational cooperation have received little judicial scrutiny. This paper examines human rights concerns associated with the rapidly expanding field of transnational education an activity frequently reliant on interstate cooperation. By re-examining the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights the legal obligations of countries establishing engaged in public activity overseas are explored. The analysis is structured around a case study on the oversight of a European education facility affected by Bahrain’s controversial response to pro-reform protests.
