Wider online access to ECtHR case-law knowledge

The Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) have opened up the Court’s collaborative knowledge-sharing platform to legal professionals, academics and the wider public.

The platform, known as ECHR-KS, seeks to share Convention case-law knowledge, complementing existing information tools such as HUDOC.

The site is developed and maintained by the registry and its content does not bind the court.

The platform presents the latest analysis of case-law developments in a thematic and contextualised manner.


The materials produced by the registry are supplemented by documents and links of more general case-law relevance.

The platform’s content is updated weekly, making it a comprehensive and up-to-date source of Convention case-law analysis.

The content is available in both official languages, English and French.

The monthly compilation of legal summaries (the Case-Law Information Note or ‘CLIN’) will no longer be published.

Legal summaries in individual cases will continue to be posted on HUDOC and will also be referenced on the ECHR-KS platform.
