 The European Convention on Human Rights
The Council convened in 1948, and the Convention was drafted in 1949.
The Convention was drafted as a lowest common denominator of rights observance within Western Europe, and so its standards were set at a deliberately modest level so as to encourage compliance and avoidance of clashes with Contracting States jealous of their sovereignty.
Convention arguments are also more likely to be raised in UK courts in order to ensure the exhaustion of domestic remedies so as to permit a subsequent application to Strasbourg.

 French Views of the European Convention
The decision to set up a "Convention on the Future of Europe" to transform the EU treaties into a European Constitution was decided at the European Council of Laeken in December 2001.
Fortunately, a precedent existed: the 1999 Convention to elaborate a "European Charter on Fundamental Rights." This German idea is considered a success both in terms of method and substance and became a viable concept for starting a more ambitious reform of EU institutions.
For this reason, it is now the appropriate moment to describe the French participation in the Convention, to outline the French positions on the main issues on the agenda, and to ask if the Convention represents an opportunity for France to give a new impulse and a new coherence to its policy on the EU.
