European Court of Human Rights
The ERRC has lodged numerous cases against European countries with the Court. ERRC litigation has resulted in positive judgments relating to discrimination against Roma on a broad range of issues covered by the Convention, including police abuse, violence by non-state actors, education and housing.
Through its strategic litigation and landmark cases the ERRC has contributed the development of the Court’s jurisprudence regarding Article 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which prohibits discrimination in relation to substantive articles included in the Convention.
The most significant cases brought by the ERRC to date include Moldovan and Others v Romania, Secic v Croatia and D.H. and Others v the Czech Republic.
