Human rights and freedoms belong to every person in the word regardless of their nationality, gender, race, religion, language or any other status. Individuals who believe their human rights have been violated and are unable to remedy their claim through their national legal system, may lodge an application to the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). The alleged violation must have been committed by one of the States bound by the Convention.
I have studied especially administrative matters according to the national law in front of the ECtHR. The methods used in my diploma are descriptive, statistics, and comparison. In The research part, I mainly focus on the analysis of the annual reports of the ECtHR, between 2014–2017, to clarify, if the number of complaints before the ECtHR is increasing, falling or stagnating. In administrative matters, the most common violation is lengthy decision- making. Slovenia also often violated the right to a trial within a reasonable time. In the Lukenda judgment, the ECHR noted, that this violation constituted a systemic problem of the state. After this judgments Slovenia began to be aware of the importance of respecting the right to a trial within a reasonable time.
