That is, until recently. Doing so, it has gradually turned into a European Constitutional Court, in particular for privacy cases. The Commission could declare a case admissible or inadmissible but could not judge on the substance of the matter, a task which was left to the European Court of Human Rights ECtHR.
COVID-19 and the European Convention on Human Rights
It is certainly true that the juridical system on the protection of human rights in Europe is rather complex. Against this background, the current article highlights issues with respect to the sharing of competence over fundamental rights by the two courts. In general, the two European Courts have developed aharmonious and co-operative relationship. Since the judgements in Bosphorus 3 and in M. Relevant caselaw on criminal matters however, reveals an insistence of the Luxembourg Court in deviating from Strasbourg caselaw in order to preserve the autonomy and effectiveness of EU legislative measures, even over human rights standards set by the ECtHR. Additionally, Art.
The number of non-compliance judgments of the Court varies considerably. Some states have been found to violate rules more than times, while the number of non-compliance judgments is in the single digits for others. Since we know a lot about non- compliance in the EU, but not much about the same phenomenon in other regional organizations, this article examines why some countries receive more ECHR judgments than others. Powerful countries, states with limited administrative capacities, and countries without active civil societies tend to have higher shares of ECHR non-compliance judgments. Moreover, the paper argues that under conditions of low legalization, autocratic countries are more likely to block cases from turning into ECHR judgments than countries with higher democracy scores.

The European Court of Human Rights under scrutiny: explaining variation in non-compliance judgments
The current COVID pandemic has strained the global economy and limited some of most important human rights and fundamental freedoms in democratic societies. Health safety restrictions have had an impact on freedom of liberty and security for persons being quarantined as a result of contracting or being suspected of having contracted the virus. Limits on freedom of expression have been imposed in order, allegedly, to prevent information disorder. Assemblies and protests have been prohibited to prevent the spread of the virus. Equally, access to courts has been impeded or allowed only under special arrangements. One might argue that there have been violations of the right to life of individuals who have died because of the virus and of the lack of sufficient medical care, especially in detention or care institutions. The right to family life has been disrupted due to restrictions on movement of persons across Europe.

I. The Relationship Betweenthe Two European Courts
The restrictions permitted under this Convention to the said rights and freedoms shall not be applied for any purpose other than those for which they have been prescribed. This Article means that it is a violation of the ECHR for a state to restrict a listed human right for any reason other than the one formally given and allowed under the Convention; "there can be no inherent or implied limitations on the rights guaranteed. Each limitation must be expressed and have an explicit purpose".
Drafted in by the then newly formed Council of Europe ,  the convention entered into force on 3 September All Council of Europe member states are party to the Convention and new members are expected to ratify the convention at the earliest opportunity. Any person who feels their rights have been violated under the Convention by a state party can take a case to the Court. Judgments finding violations are binding on the States concerned and they are obliged to execute them.
