The eu court docket of Human Rights is confronted with an immense and ev- starting to be workload. Up until eventually 1998, the courtroom stated in basic terms 837 judgments, whereas it rendered four. 000 judgments within the final 3 years by myself. On 18 September 2008, the eu court docket of Human Rights th introduced its 10. 000 judgment; at the moment, there are a few a hundred. 000 instances pending sooner than the court docket. This huge, immense caseload is either an affidavit to the Court’s luck and of the enormous probability posed to the eff- tiveness of the safety of the rights and freedoms assured by means of the ecu conference on Human Rights and its Protocols. furthermore, Protocol No. 14, which was once meant to relieve the matter by means of - creasing the potency of the court docket, remains to be no longer in strength. This e-book is meant to give a contribution to the continued dialogue concerning the reforms which are essential to hinder a failure of the ecu- pean method of human rights safety. It compiles the contributions of a workshop which happened on 17-18 December 2007 on the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public legislation and foreign legislation in Heidelberg and the discussions following the displays. The c- vening of this workshop used to be advised by means of Christian Tomuschat. The convention introduced jointly teachers and practitioners and hence provided a great chance for the dialogue of attainable - proaches to the dilemma.
