This chapter is an examination of the Administrative Tribunal of the Council of Europe (the Tribunal), its functions, and its proceedings. The Tribunal safeguards the right of the organisation’s staff of access to a court in employment disputes. Concerning that right, and other fundamental rights relevant to employment relations, the Tribunal increasingly draws inspiration also from the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) and the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), whose techniques of drafting and reasoning are similar to those of the Tribunal. Moreover, the Tribunal is composed of three judges and three deputy judges, with one judge and their deputy appointed by the ECtHR — the Tribunal’s Chair. The other two judges and two deputy judges are appointed by the Council of Ministers (CM).
