How to Use the EDLD

This section allows users to search case law and decisions by using filters (such as country, date or authority), themes (such as “Memory and Reparations”), or by selecting keywords (such as “Admissibility” or “Effective Remedy”). Results are listed by date but the option exists to list them alphabetically. Alternatively, users can use the “Search PDF Text” function, to search for particular words or phrases – in all four languages – across all the documents in this section.

Law & Standards

This section allows users to access information relating to the European, African, Inter-American and United Nations systems and compiles domestic best practices from across the world.
