The Brussels Declaration, adopted on 27 March 2015 following the High Level Conference held in Brussels on Implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights, our shared responsibility, stressed the fondamental role of action plans and reports for the execution of judgments of the European Court as key tools in the dialogue between the Committee of Ministers and the States Parties.

To assist national authorities in the preparation of these documents, the Execution Department for the execution of the judgments of the European Court has published a "Guide for the drafting of action plans and reports for the execution of judgments of the European Court". (see more Vademecum)

Annual Report 2016 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.
