The Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and its judicial body the European Court of Human Rights both constitute fundamental tools in cases of human rights violations. This protection is achieved through a judicial process at supranational level, but also, thanks to the case-law it generates, this can later be applied at national level. However, the biggest challenge this system of human rights protection presents is the lack of general awareness of the Convention, the procedural tools to access it and the conditions for applying before the ECtHR.

The usefulness, effectiveness and potential of the ECtHR as a protection mechanism is therefore extensive but, are we sufficiently aware of the possibilities it offers? In which cases can we use the ECtHR as a mechanism for protection? What is the procedure for lodging a complete and valid application with this international court?

This is a course aimed at people interested in learning and/or using the European system for the protection of human rights. We will analyse the rights recognised at the European level through the European Convention on Human Rights, and the case-law of the ECtHR. In addition, we will also study the conditions to present valid applications before the ECtHR.
