Abstract:     
Protocol 14 to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) introduced a new admissibility criterion: the lack of a significant disadvantage. The criterion, included after long and very principled discussions about the accessibility and effectiveness of the European system of human rights supervision, will be the object under scrutiny in this contribution. The main issue under review will be whether the concerns in the run up to the introduction of this admissibility have materialised. Has the practice of the Court in applying the “lack of a significant disadvantage” as a threshold at the entrance of the European system indeed endangered the access of individual applicants to the Court? In order to answer this question I will first look at the discussions which led to the creation of this criterion. Subsequently, its scope and application will be addressed by looking at the jurisprudence of the Court.
