Video on the European Court of Human Rights

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg has produced a video entitled The Conscience of Europe (15 minutes, .wmv format) that describes the history, role and functioning of the institution.

The video gives concrete examples of cases the Court has dealt with in its 50-year history.

It is a very interesting pedagogical document that shows how the Court deals with every imaginable kind of real, everyday issue.

The Court is an institution under the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (AKA European Convention of Human Rights) that was drawn up by the Council of Europe.
