Maxwell-Fyfe’s involvement in drafting the ECHR was key.

 

In certain ways, in his very person he also provided a living link between the Convention and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, just as the Universal Declaration reflected the insights and experiences of men and women who had just witnessed and in some cases had been personally devastated by the events of the second world war so the text of the European Convention was moulded by a man who had been indelibly affected by the same epoch making events .’
