The European Convention on Human Rights came into force on 3 September 1953. Denmark was one of ten countries that founded the convention, and traditionally there has been great support for human rights in Denmark. However, in recent years there has been a lot of criticism of the Human Rights Convention.

The book answers basic questions and reviews the 15 cases that Denmark has "lost" since its accession in 1953, most of whom have referred to the right to a fair trial. In addition, Denmark has lost principal cases of forced membership of trade unions, lack of protection of journalists' freedom of speech and illegal detention. The book shows how several of these cases, as well as other fundamental cases of the human rights court, have had a decisive influence on the Danish judicial system and values ​​in Denmark. The convention and additional protocols are printed in the book and therefore always at hand.
