Guide: Requests for interim measures before the European Court of Human Rights
These resources present an overview of the provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights, the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights, and the Rules of Court in relation to requests for interim measures, pursuant to Rule 39 of the Rules of Court. Interim measures are urgent measures, which the ECtHR may require of the Respondent Government and/or the applicant(s), where there is an imminent risk of irreparable harm.
Our Guide to Interim Measures has been comprehensively updated in late 2022 to include new practices and recent developments, including the new online platform for Rule 39 applications.
