of the Committee of Ministers


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

Annual Report 2017

2017 saw a confirmation of the positive results observed over the last years in pursuing the reforms undertaken in the context of the “Interlaken process”. The progress achieved demonstrates an enhanced dialogue between all stakeholders and the commitment of member States to abide by the Court’s judgments.

The current efforts still have to be supplemented by further measures to improve the system’s capacity to overcome situations of resistance and to provide speedier and more effective support to States in complex execution processes. The stocktaking of the results of the “Interlaken process” is due end 2019.
