These web-pages focus on intergovernmental work on the reform of the Court since the Rome Ministerial Conference of 2000, which led to Protocol no. 14 and a series of non-binding instruments. They cover notably the 2006 Report of the Group of Wise Persons and the successive High-level Conferences on the reform of the Court that took place between 2010 and 2012 at Interlaken, Izmir and Brighton, and follow-up to these events, including the adoption and opening for signature in 2013 of Protocols no. 15 and 16.

At the head of the inter-governmental process is the Committee of Ministers, which gives terms of reference to the Steering Committee for Human Rights (CDDH) and the Committee of experts on the reform of the Court (DH-GDR), a specialist plenary body subordinate to the CDDH. The work of the DH-GDR is prepared in smaller drafting groups (GT-GDR-A to G) that deal with specific issues. In the past, other subordinate bodies of the CDDH were also involved in the reform process.
