European Court of Human Rights Monthly Information Notes Now Easier to Find

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) based in Strasbourg has made it easier to find and search its Information Notes.

These notes are a monthly round-up, in the form of legal summaries, of the most interesting judgments, decisions and communicated cases. Each summary has a headnote and is classified by the article(s) of the European Convention on Human Rights to which the case relates and by keywords.

It is possible to search for  individual summaries from the Information Notes from 1998 to date by selecting the ‘Legal summaries’ box in the Document collections in the HUDOC database and using all the available search criteria and filters.

The Court has created a mini-tutorial with more information.

The ECHR hears complaints from individuals living in any of the member states of the Council of Europe about violations of the European Convention of Human Rights. The Council of Europe is one of the continent's oldest political organizations, founded in 1949. It has 47 member countries.
