Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly talks about the convention for the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms (European Convention on Human Rights) signed by states members of the Council of Europe, at Rome, on 4th November 1950. It also describes the 59 articles agreed by the Governments signatory. The Governments signatory, being Members of the Council of Europe agreed upon the articles by considering the Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 10th December 1948, and by reaffirming their profound belief in those Fundamental Freedoms which are the foundation of justice and peace in the world and are best maintained on the one hand by an effective political democracy and on the other by a common understanding and observance of the Human Rights upon which they depend.
