EIT julkaissut uusia katsauksia oikeuskäytäntöönsä tietyiltä aloilta20.9.2020 | Oikeusuutiset
On the occasion of a conference to mark the 70th anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights, the Court is today launching a series of four new factsheets on its case-law on the following themes:
- independence of the justice system;
- restrictions on the right to liberty and security for reasons other than those prescribed by the European Convention on Human Rights;
- right to respect for family life of prisoners in remote penal facilities;
- use of force in the policing of demonstrations.
Since September 2010 the Court has published on its website about 60 factsheets providing the reader with a rapid overview of the most relevant cases concerning a particular topic, regularly updated to reflect developments in its case-law. Many have been translated into various languages, including German, Croatian, Greek, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish and Turkish, with the support of, among others, the States concerned and national human-rights institutions. They can be viewed and downloaded here.
The factsheets aim to contribute to increasing awareness about the Court’s judgments among journalists, national authorities and the public in the Member States of the Council of Europe with a view to improving implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights at nationallevel. One of the key demands of the current reform plans to increase the effectiveness of theConvention system is for Member States to guarantee domestic implementation of the Convention and its case-law.
