This tag is encouraged to be used in connection with the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms or, as frequently used, the European Convention on Human Rights, ECHR or ECoHR (the "Convention").

Of 46 states in the European Council to protect human rights and political freedoms, ECoHR is a supra-national charter. (see 10 May, 1948 second and third Articles of the Pledge in the Congress of Europe in The Hague ["We desire a Charter of Human Rights guaranteeing liberty of thought, assembly and expression as well as right to form a political opposition. We desire a Court of Justice with adequate sanctions for the implementation of this Charter"])

The member states of the European Council established the European Court of Human Right ("ECtHR" or the "Court"; see, Art 19., Sec. II, ECHR).

The Convention is of "direct, supra-constitutional effect" (Baka v. Hungary, [GC] no. 20261/12, § 17., ECHR, 2016, joint concurring op. of judges Pinto de Albuquerque and Dedov), and thereby the Court is vested with decisionally also affirming that the Court is vested with the power "to override [any] contradicting domestic constitutional provision". (Baka, supra, at § 1.).

Asserting "the power to declare [the] domestic constitutional provisions [of the member states of the European Council] devoid of any legal effects within the relevant domestic legal order", (Baka, supra, at § 1.) the Court "affirm[ed] itself as the European Constitutional Court" by the power of the Convention (Baka, supra); axiomatically, declaring thereby the Convention the Fundamental Charter or Constitution of the whole of Europe (with the exceptions of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia) through the European Council, and that of the European Union.
