Comments on the European Court of Justice decision in Demir v Turkey (34503/97) on whether the refusal of the Turkish courts to allow the applicant civil servants the right to form a trade union and enter into collective agreements constituted a breach of their rights under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.11 on the freedom of association and the right to form and join a trade union. Comments on the significance of the ruling in terms of the willingness of the court to re-assess previous authority on the content and scope of art.11 through recognition of the convention as a "living instrument".
