Chapter Summary

The history of Human rights in the French legal order started well before the creation of the European Convention of Human Rights(ECHR). This chapter is divided into three main parts. First, it offers background information on the status of the ECHR in the French legal order, the judicial control mechanisms aimed at protecting human rights and the binding force of the Strasbourg Court's case law. It then discusses key issues concerning minorities and vulnerable groups in France, which have given birth to an important body of case law in Strasbourg regarding the protection of foreigners, religious minorities, equality and non-discrimination, as well as the protection of 'non-majoritarian' views (part II). Subsequently, this paper focuses on litigation trends in the European Court of Human Rights in these different fields (part III) and gives an account of Strasbourg's jurisprudence.
