This Article examines the operation of the European Convention on the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms system ("European Convention on Human Rights" or "Convention") (i.e., the Council of Europe's system for human rights protection, based on the European Convention on Human Rights and the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights, as distinct from the unique system of the European Union). The system is examined in an effort to discern the enhanced impact the Convention may have on Community law under the Lisbon Treaty, and the difficulties this may present.
