ECHR Blog, Antoine Buyse’s blog covering the European Convention on Human Rights, is celebrating its fifth anniversary today. Happy anniversary, and keep up the good work!
The Convention and the case law of the ECHR did feature in this blog, readers may recall, in the context of Germany’s excessive length of court proceedings. Human rights is both a great concept, an abstract category, and of great relevance in our daily practice. If we do not have to pay attention to their impact on our daily practice and can take them for granted, all the better. But we should think of those who can not do so.
