Reservations are a well-established tool which allows States to restrict their obligations under international law while participating in the creation of international treaty law. In addition to general rules regulating reservations, international treaties may limit the use of reservations. This is particularly relevant for international human rights treaties. This text introduces the reader to the role reservations can play in the context of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
