A high-level conference on the harmonisation of case law and judicial practice tackled inconsistent interpretations of legal instruments that adversely affect their implementation – and result in numerous complaints brought before the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). Most such cases do not arise from quality of legal texts, but are attributable to inconsistent judicial interpretations. Organised by the Council of Europe, in cooperation with the Council of State of Greece, the conference was the first ever multilateral gathering to respond to requests from Council of Europe members to find ways to better support harmonisation of case law. The event was attended by high representatives of European judiciaries and their staff responsible for case law review, permitting participants from some 20 Council of Europe member states to take stock of and to share positive experiences.
