Abstract

This article discusses the effects which the European Convention has had on Armenia. Armenia became a member of the Council of Europe (CoE) in 2001 and ratified the ECHR in 2002. The ECtHR passed its first judgment against Armenia in January 2007 (Mkrtchyan v Armenia (No. 6562/03) 11.1.07) and, as of July 2011, had found violations in 25 cases. Analysis of these judgments shows that the majority (13) included a violation of Art. 6 (right to a fair trial), which is the most frequently violated article not only by Armenia, but also by other member states, with 8,019 of 13,697 judgments in 1959-2010 including a violation of Art. 6 (nearly 59%).
