The supervision process
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 positive and demonstrates that many achievements have been made, proving the reality of the commitments made by the member States.
However, the full, effective and prompt execution of the Court’s judgments remains central for the efficiency of the convention system.
