The European Court of Human Rights is a supranational or international court established by the European Convention on Human Rights. It hears applications alleging that a contracting state has breached one or more of the human rights provisions concerning civil and political rights set out in the Convention and its protocols.

In 2015 the court proclaimed that outlawing "denial" of the Armenian Genocide was wrong and an infringement of free speech but that outlawing "denial" of the Holocaust was not wrong and not an infringement of free speech.[1]
