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.
