The History and the Structure of European Court of Human Right
The European Court of Human Rights has been established by this convention, currently with more than 50 years of judicial experience, is also one of the most important international judicial organizations and from November 1998 onward the Protocol 11 became enforceable and along with its being imperative, the former two-steps system consisting of European Commission of Human Rights and the European court of Human Rights changed its structure into a one-step system, that is the new European Court of Human Rights, and that significant changes were made in the way an application was dealt with and in the Court procedure as well. This article will answer this question: How can this structure secure the rights guaranteed in this Convention against member states? Given that the topics related to the Court are very broad and diverse, attempts have been made to address issues about: the history and the structure of the Court, the issue of the Protocol 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights and the aforementioned Court after this Protocol, judges and the manner of their election, jurisdiction and so forth.
