Schema partnered with the Department of Political Science at the University of Washington to create the European Court of Human Rights Database (ECHRdb) — an innovative application visualizing the cases of the European Court of Human Rights, and enables broad access to the data by scholars, practitioners, and the general public. The tool is based on a static dataset spanning the years 1960–2014. It includes over 15,000 judgments, 91.9% of which were violations, and 1,233 amicus briefs.
