- This paper studies the second major reform of the European Court of Human Rights, which was mainly brought about by the entry into force of Protocol No. 14 to the European Convention of Human Rights. It firstly analyses the main contents of Protocol No. 14, then compares the statistics around the implementation of this Protocol. The statistics show that the new judicial formations introduced by this Protocol are effective in reducing the number of pending applications and in improving the filtering ability of applications by the Court. The new admissibility criterion should be studied after its application by the single-judge and the three-judge committee. In conclusion, the second major reform of European Court of Human Rights is useful and meaningful.
