The European Convention on Human Rights Turns 70

The Human Rights Centre will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the European Convention.


The Human Rights Centre is organising a bespoke event with the European Court of Human Rights’ President, Judge Spano, and former President of the Court, Judge Sicilianos. They will be in conversation with Prof Eva Brems on 20 November 2020. This will be streamed online.


The Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, better known as the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), was opened for signature in Rome on 4 November 1950.
