On 21 and 22 November, representatives of the Execution Department participated in the 8th Annual International Forum on the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights in Lviv, Ukraine.

Theme of this year’s forum was the right to a fair trial under Article 6 of the Convention. Human rights lawyers, academics, members of the Ukrainian judiciary and judges of the European Court of Human Rights came together to enrich their knowledge and to exchange experience on the subject.
A special session dedicated to the execution of the ECHR judgments focused on the current state of execution of judgments concerning Ukraine. The participants focused on the need to reform the current legislative and institutional framework to resolve long-standing systemic and structural problems identified by the Strasbourg Court’s judgments in cases concerning Ukraine.
