of the Committee of Ministers
Supervision of the execution of judgments and decisions of the European Court of Human Rights
The Committee of Ministers’ annual report presents the status of execution of the main judgments of the European Court of Human Rights by the member States of the Council of Europe. It also provides statistics and information on new cases, cases pending or closed during the year.
Annual Report 2016
2016 was a year of interim stocktaking for the “Interlaken-Izmir-Brighton-Brussels” process which aims at ensuring the long-term effectiveness of the Convention system. This stocktaking is highly positive and demonstrates that many achievements were made, proving the reality of commitment made by the member States.
However, the full, effective and prompt execution of the Court’s judgments remains central to many important challenges for the system which need to be addressed.
