European Court of Human Rights - Case Law Judgements

This database provides structured free text documents that follow specific formats, making them suitable for automated text mining.

Nikolaos Aletras, Dimitrios Tsarapatsanis, Daniel Preoţiuc-Pietro and Vasileios Lampos have performed just such an analysis, described in their paper, Predicting judicial decisions of the European Court of Human Rights: a Natural Language Processing perspective. Specifically, based on an analysis of the textual description of the case, they manage to predict with an accuracy of about 80%, the binary outcome of the case; i.e. whether or not a violation of human rights has been judged to have occured.
