LISBON CONFERENCE ON THE LONGER-TERM FUTURE OF THE MECHANISM OF THE EUROPEAN CONVENTION ON HUMAN RIGHTS

 

On 11 December 2015 the Steering Committee for Human Rights (CDDH) of the Council of Europe adopted the report on the longer-term future of the system of the European Convention on Human Rights. The report has been transmitted to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe.

The report is the result of the work carried out in 2014 and 2015 by the GT-GDR-F and it covers the Convention system as a whole, and does not exclusively focus on the functioning of the Court. Four overarching areas have been considered important for the longer-term effectiveness and viability of the Convention system: national implementation of the Convention; the authority of the Court; the execution of judgments and its supervision; and the place of the Convention mechanism in the European and international legal order. For each of these areas the present and future challenges have been identified. It was considered whether the current system has the ability to respond to those challenges, within the framework of the existing structures to determine whether further reform is needed outside the framework of the existing structures, namely those that presuppose the creation of a new mechanism or a new function carried out by an existing mechanism, or the elimination of an existing mechanism.

Below follows the project of the Conference, which will take place at the University of Lisbon Faculty of Law on May 20, 2016.
