Signed on 4 November 1950, the European Convention on Human Rights celebrates its seventieth anniversary this year. This offers us the opportunity to celebrate the significance and uniqueness of this international convention, which forms the foundation of the protection of Human Rights within the Council of Europe.
For this occasion, the Journal des tribunaux is publishing our traditional case comments of the case law of the European Court of Human Rights. Our paper covers the first half of 2020. The health crisis has not had a significant impact on the functioning of the Court, as its judgments and decisions on important issues are of the utmost importance.
