Abstract: The humanism of criminal law is a principle of criminal policy and postmodern criminal law. It is listed in numerous internal and external sources. An international treaty based on the principle of humanism is the Convention against Torture and Other Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, adopted in New York in 1984. The European Court of Human Rights has a rich jurisprudence that sanctions violations of the European Convention (see art. 3) in the field of human rights protection, including in terms of humanism of criminal law.
