Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses the present situation of the European Court of Human Rights and attempts to unravel the different problems that are raised year after year. It investigates the current situation in respect of the accuracy of these very pessimistic views on the future of the Court and its actual problems. The chapter examines possible remedies in terms of their relevance and their shortcomings, particularly those that are being put forward by the states parties and the Court itself. The chapter also investigates how to find or restore some points of balance within the European human rights system: the balance between efficiency, legitimacy and equity on the one hand, and the balance between the Court and the states, which have created the Court, on the other. It draws some preliminary conclusions as to the kind of European Court of Human Rights Europe desires for the future.
