Abstract

Through a full analysis of the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights under Arts 2, 3 and 8 ECHR, this article proposes that state action or inaction resulting in individuals being exposed to destitution, degrading living conditions or similar manifestations of extreme poverty should, in certain specific and limited circumstances, be recognised as constituting a violation of the European Convention on Human Rights.
