Summary: The conflict between immunities and the right of access to court under Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights remains one of the most interesting problems in the current Strasbourg jurisprudence. The European Court of Human Rights had to rule repeatedly on interferences with the right of access by State immunity or the immunity of international organisations. It is here that human rights law and public international law are directly conflicting with each other. a oeDomestic immunitiesa oe of Members of Parliament, judges, the police or the social services have likewise conflicted.
