This chapter presents the key human rights instruments of the Council of Europe: the European Convention on Human Rights and the European Social Charter. It looks at their content and analyses their monitoring mechanisms. It examines the differences in the protection between civil and political, on the one hand, and socio-economic entitlements, on the other, and identifies the shortcomings of each system. It, finally, puts forward certain suggestions as to the future prospects of the protection of human rights by this European regional organisation that counts 47 Member States.
