This chapter discusses Article 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which protects the freedoms of peaceful assembly and association. It provides for the creation and operation of political parties, interest groups, and trade unions. It protects the right of individuals to assemble and to associate for the furtherance of their personal interests, be they economic, social, or cultural. Article 11 also makes specific reference to trade unions, the roles of which overlap considerably between the political and the economic interests of their members.
