Speech by Laurence Burgorgue-Larsen (in French only)

The 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

10 years of the "new" Court - November 1998

The "new" Court was set up following the entry into force of Protocol No. 11 to the Convention on 1 November 1998. A single system was thus brought into existence allowing 800 million Europeans to apply directly to an international court if they considered themselves victims of a violation of their fundamental rights.

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the "new" Court, President Costa hailed the establishment of the "new" Court in 1998 as a landmark in the development of international human rights protection.

Proceedings of the seminar

This book, designed to mark the Court’s 50th anniversary in 2009 and the Convention’s 60th in 2010, groups a variety of individual contributions, round a skeleton retracing the main relevant events over the last half-century.
