According to Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) “no one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment”.

The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) held that degrading and inhumane living conditions in refugee camps can amount to a violation of Art. 3 ECHR by the responsible government.

If you are living in these camps we can assist you in submitting an urgent complaint (interim measure) to the ECtHR, located in France. The Court is responsible for complaints against violations of human rights under the European Convention of Human Rights. If your complaint is successful the Court usually orders the government to provide you with adequate living conditions.
