Impact of the European Convention on Human Rights: Parliamentary Assembly publishes a selection of examples of the impact of the Convention in States parties

On 8 January 2016, the Legal Affairs and Human Rights Department of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, upon request by Mr Pierre-Yves Le Borgn’, Rapporteur on the implementation of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights, and in collaboration with the Human Rights Centre of the University of Essex, United Kingdom, published an information document compiling selected examples of the positive impact of the Convention within the States Parties.


Annual Report 2016 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.
