European Court of Human Rights

The Court was established in 1959, headquartered in Strasbourg/France. It rules on individual or State application alleging violations of the civil or political rights set out in the European Convention on Human Rights (no special focus on torture, which is part of the whole). To mention here is also an interesting fact sheets collection with examples on violations of human rights in European countries.
