Eurpean Union  came into being on 1.11.1993 when The Maastrich Treaty - The Treaty on European Union - entered into force.

EU is the economic-policital association of the democratic European countries which was created in the result of a long process of  political, economic and social integration initiated after the Second World War.

The European Union has its origins in the European Coal and Steel Community (1951/1952) but most important for the European integration was the establishmentof the European Economic Community in 1958. That process led to the later political and economical  transformations in Europe and the creation of the European Union.

The European Convention on Human Rights-an international agreement on the protection of human rights signed by the Member States of the Council of Europe .The Convention was signed on 4 November 1950 and entered into force on 3 September 1953. The Parties  of the Convention are all 47 Member States of the Council of Europe. The Convention established the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. Complaints to the Court may be submitted by individuals, groups and non governmental organisations as well.
