The study of these cases has a twofoldpurpose: to raise awareness of the rights and freedoms recognizedin the Magna Carta and in the European Convention onHuman Rights, and to develop the tools needed to argue on thebasis of legal notions and to cultivate a critical approach towardthe law, constitutional interpretation and, ultimately, society as awhole.
