Supervision of execution of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights

In accordance with Article 46 of the Convention as amended by Protocol No. 11, the Committee of Ministers supervises the execution of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. This work is carried out mainly at four regular meetings (DH meetings) every year.
Documentation for these meetings takes the form of the Annotated Order of Business. The content of this document is made public, as are, in general, the decisions taken in each case.
The Committee of Ministers' essential function is to ensure that member states comply with the judgments and certain decisions of the European Court of Human Rights.
The Committee completes each case by adopting a final resolution. In some cases, interim resolutions may prove appropriate. Both kinds of Resolutions are public.
Applicants can access the Resolutions adopted concerning their case (see the box "Adopted texts" below).
