European Convention on Human Rights

The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) protects the human rights of people in countries that belong to the Council of Europe.

The Council of Europe was founded after the Second World War to protect human rights and the rule of law, and to promote democracy.

The Convention consists of numbered ‘articles’ protecting basic human rights.

The Convention guarantees specific rights and freedoms and prohibits unfair and harmful practices.
