Prof. Samahon,

Although most European lawyers and legal scholars are formalists, political scientists who study European courts are not. You might be especially interested in some of the work of Erik Voeten at Georgetown's School of Foreign Service, who has published several articles on judicial selection and the European Court of Human Rights, including:

"The Impartiality of International Judges: Evidence from the European Court of Human Rights". American Political Science Review (Fall 2008).

"The Politics of International Judicial Appointments: Evidence from the European Court of Human Rights". International Organization (Fall 2007).

You can download the papers here:

Indeed, Professor Voeten, among others, has done interesting work in this area.
