Access from EThOS:
The predominant contemporary focus of the Convention is the effectiveness of the rights with respect to the human individuals for whom the Convention was originally intended, but it can be forgotten that non-governmental organisations were subjects of many ofthe same rights from the beginning. The aim of this work is to review applications made by non-governmental organisations (NGO's) under the European Convention of Human Rights. It covers applications to the European Commission (abolished since Protocol!!) and to the European Court. It is important to emphasise that this work is not a review of the substantive Articles themselves, but of their applicability to non-governmental organisations and the value and relevance of the rights to non-governmental organisations. Mention has been made of applications of minor importance to illustrate range of applications. Applications brought by individuals are discussed only when they are of significant importance to understanding the context of a Convention Article or the context ofparticular arguments. The general aim is to assess the contribution made by NGO applications to Convention case law. I have sought to take account of Convention jurisprudence up to the end of2006, although reference is made to a small number of decisions in 2007. Material was drawn from University library resources and from the website of the Court ofHuman Rights, together with resources available through electronic journals on the Internet.
