This chapter examines the origins and first proposals for a European Convention on Human rights, as well as the origins of the Council of Europe. It discusses the first proposals for a European Court of Human Rights, as advocated by the European Movement and proceeds to address the drafting of the ECHR by the Consultative Assembly of the Council of Europe. It is argued that the first proposals for the Convention were for a type of European collective pact against totalitarianism. However, the proposals for the Convention that emerged from the Consultative Assembly were such that there was a potential for the Convention to become a European Bill of Rights.

Keywords:   ECHR, European Court of Human Rights, Council of Europe, Consultative Assembly, Pierre-Henri Teitgen, draft
