Reference documents on supervision of the execution



In accordance with Article 46 of the European Convention on Human Rights as amended by Protocols No. 11 and No. 14, the Committee of Ministers supervises the execution of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. This work is carried out mainly at 4 regular meetings (DH/HR meetings) every year. Documentation for these meetings takes the form of the Annotated Agenda and Order of Business. These documents are made public about 2 weeks after the meeting, 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 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.
