Progress and challenges seen in implementing human rights judgments, says annual report

Human rights have improved in a number of countries thanks to moves by governments to implement judgments from the European Court of Human Rights, but serious challenges remain, according to the latest annual report from the Council of Europe's Committee of Ministers. The report underlines progress towards better human rights standards in countries' responses to judgments by the Court and welcomes growing involvement from civil society and national human rights institutions.

However, the human rights protection system faces several challenges, with more complex cases coming to the Court and governments finding it increasingly difficult to respond quickly to judgments. The departure of Russia from the Council of Europe will also have consequences, whilst highlighting the importance of the human rights convention in difficult times.
