The European Union is proud to join the celebration of 70 years of the European Convention on Human Rights. It remains one of the most significant international human rights law treaties ever signed. Most significantly, it allows Europeans to defend their rights in front of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. The EU shares the Convention’s vision for the protection of human rights across the continent, and remains committed to acceding to the Convention.
