The European system of human rights can be analyzed in multiple dimensions. First, there is a system of protection within the Council of Europe, which has been the most effective so far. Documents of great importance were adopted within the CSCE system (later renamed to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe-OSCE). The third area of protection was developed in the legal framework of the European Union. The paper examines the main trends and issues that have emerged in jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights, particularly, the increasing number of applications which have reduced the Court’s effectiveness as well as the government’s refusal to act in accordance with the Court’s decisions. The influence of OSCE on the development of the European system of human rights will be presented as well as the relation of human rights established by the acts of the EU and with European Convention on Human Rights. The last question has caused some difficulties in practice and has led us think: is there in Europe one system of human right protection with several items?
