[en] This entry provides a detailed account and assessment of the Upper Silesian Mixed Commission, a quasi-judicial body instituted from 1922 to 1937 between Germany and Poland in a region partitioned between the two states. The Mixed Commission for Upper Silesia offered the most sophisticated mechanism for the protection of minority rights during the Interwar Period. As a predecessor of the European Court of Human Rights, its legacy, especially its case-law on questions such as indirect discrimination, remains relevant today.
