European Convention for Human Rights (Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms), 1950

The “European Convention on Human Rights” sets forth a number of fundamental rights and freedoms, including the right to life, prohibition of torture, prohibition of slavery and forced labour, or the right to liberty. Parties undertake to secure these rights and freedoms to everyone within their jurisdiction. The European Court of Human Rights deals with individual and inter-State petitions, and may also give advisory opinions concerning the interpretation of the Convention.
