Court Publishes Factsheets Offering Information by State and by Theme

The European Court of Human Rights has compiled two series of factsheets providing information about its case law, including pending cases. A series of “country profiles” provides wide-ranging State-specific information for each the forty-seven European countries that have ratified the European Convention on Human Rights, touching upon the human rights issues dealt with by the Court for each State. A compilation of “Stastistics on judgments by State” is also available, offering charts showing the subject matter of judgments for each State. In addition, a series thematic factsheets summarizes the Court’s case work by topic. It is hoped that these resources will help make the Court’s work and case-law better known and more accessible.
