Overview

Guido Raimondi's mandate as President of the European Court of Human Rights is coming to an end. In view of his departure, his colleagues, judges at the Court, judges in national and international jurisdictions, as well as his Colleagues at the International Labour Organisation and his numerous friends, wish to pay tribute to Guido Raimondi's, the wealth of his professional accomplishments, which culminated with his Presidency of the Court, as well as his exceptional contribution to the latter institution. The wide range of topics characterising the present work reflects the diversity characterising Guido Raimondi's interests, which include not only civil and political rights, but economic and social rights as well, particularly in the sphere of labour law. The different forms of judicial dialogue addressed in the present work further reflect one of President Raimondi's key contributions. The contributions are authored in the English, Italian, and French language. It is against this backdrop that the contributions seek to honour an exceptional personality who has left his mark on the European Court of Human Rights.

Reviews

Writing a foreword for the Liber Amicorum offered to Guido Raimondi is not only an honour, but a genuine pleasure. For decades – and long before he became the President of the European Court of Human Rights – Guido Raimondi has been a true amicus of the Council of Europe, whose professional eminence is paralleled by his engaging character. Just as the authors of other contributions to this book have done, I would like to pay tribute to Guido Raimondi and to thank him for what he has achieved for the Court and for the Council of Europe – to the benefit of individuals' human rights across Greater Europe. I would also like to give my personal thanks for his friendship and co-operation over these past years. Thorbjorn Jagland Secretary General of the Council of Europe January 2019
