Dutch Short Videos on Key ECHR Rights

A collection of short videos explaining, through the real-life cases of Dutch people, the significance of a number of key ECHR rights is available online (including the right to liberty, the freedom of expression and the right to a fair trial). The videos were developed at the occasion of a symposium organised last year in Middelburg, under the guidance of professor Barbare Oomen. Although only available in Dutch (and by that fact possibly only of interest to the Dutch and Belgian readers of this blog), they offer very accessible introductions to the practical value of the rights contained in the European Convention for citizens. You can watch them here. Recommended!
