Human rights law.
  The European Union’s original focus was on economic integration among the six founding Member States. The task of securing human rights at a supranational level had been entrusted to the Council of Europe, which oversees and operates the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and its associated Court, the European Court of Human Rights, situated in Strasbourg. The ECHR remains the key instrument in Europe for the protection of human rights. At the same time, the EU has, over time, developed a framework for the protection of human rights which, in part, overlaps with the ECHR but also differs in significant ways.
