This article provides an analysis of the development and modification of the victim status requirement in the recent jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights. More particularly, the article assesses the main advantages and shortcomings of the victim test determined by Article 34 of the European Convention of Human Rights. In a given context, a particular emphasis is placed on recourse to broad interpretation of the victim status requirement which gave rise to the notions of indirect and potential victims. The concept of a potential victim in a sense determined by case law of the European Court of Human Rights is a very ambiguous. The given ambiguity undermines the legal certainty within the European human rights system. The article tries to delimit the concept of potential victim as well as to propose its further improvements.
