The first edition of this new online communication tool gives examples of judgments from the European Court of Human Rights and how their implementation has improved people’s lives across Europe.

Examples of cases and their effects are shown by country and by theme. The website presents a selection of cases from the European court - it is not exhaustive. More cases will be added as the project progresses.

This resource is aimed at citizens, teachers, journalists, human rights defenders and government officials - all those who are interested in European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and its impact.

The “Other Key Conventions” feature also gives an overview of other major Council of Europe treaties and the state of their implementation (signed, ratified or neither) in the organisation’s 47 member states, and worldwide.


The first edition of this project has been made possible thanks to the support of the governments of Finland, Ireland, Norway and Germany.
