ABSTRACT
The article explores the scope of application of the Article 7(2) of the European Convention on Human Rights in cases involving the failure of the State Parties (SP) to prosecute their nationals for international crimes such as crimes against humanity. It has been argued that the SP incur civil liability for such violations even if the State participated in a United Nations peacekeeping mission. The role of the European Court of Human Rights and the issue of child protection are discussed.
