Supervision of the execution of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights 2017 - 11th Annual Report of the Committee of Ministers

Supervision of the execution of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights 2017 - 11th Annual Report of the Committee of Ministers

Implementing European Court judgments: Record number of cases closed in 2017 - challenges remain...

The Committee of Ministers' annual report presents the status of execution of the main judgments of the European Court of Human Rights by the member states of the Council of Europe. It also provides statistics and other information relating to new cases, pending cases and cases closed during the year.

2017 saw a confirmation of the positive results observed over the last years in pursuing the reforms undertaken in the context of the "Interlaken process". The progress achieved demonstrates an enhanced dialogue between all stakeholders and the commitment of member states to abide by the Court's judgments.

The current efforts still have to be supplemented by further measures to improve the system's capacity to overcome situations of resistance and to provide speedier and more effective support to states in complex execution processes. The stocktaking of the results of the "Interlaken process" is due end 2019.
