Annual Reports

of the Committee of Ministers


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

The Committee of Ministers’ annual report presents the status of execution of the main judgments of the European Court of Human Rights by the member States of the Council of Europe. It also provides statistics and information on new cases, cases pending or closed during the year.

Annual Report 2016

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.
