Joint Committee on Human Rights report on Human Rights Judgments

The Joint Committee on Human Rights’ Seventh Report. Human Rights Judgments was published on 11 March 2015.

In the report, the Committee commends the Government for the downward trend in the number of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights which have found the UK to be in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and for its successful efforts to bring to a conclusion a number of old cases.

The Committee draws to Parliament’s attention, however, the disparity between the good record of the Government before the European Court of Human Rights and the media’s portrayal of these statistics.
