Key points agreed in Brighton to define better the boundaries when the Court should and should not be involved in cases are now being implemented. Protocol 15 to the Convention, which helps define these boundaries and shortens the timeframe for application to the Court, will help the Court fulfil the purpose for which it was intended: to deal with the most serious violations of human rights.</p><p> </p> more like this
