Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen has called for further reform of the European Convention on Human Rights – and urged member States to apply it more effectively at national level.

Addressing PACE at its plenary session in Strasbourg, the Prime Minister said it was necessary to “reform in order to preserve” the Convention.

Problems included inadequate national implementation of the Court’s rulings, questions over the interpretation of the Convention and the challenge of the case-load of the Court, he said.

“Denmark has always been a strong supporter of the European human rights system – this is why our main priority is its reform,” he pointed out.
