The role of national parliaments in the implementation of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights

This seminar, aimed at members of national parliaments, was held in London on 14 October 2013, mainly to give parliamentarians a better knowledge of the European Convention on Human Rights mechanisms, and of the effective implementation of the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. A further objective was to consider the effectiveness of existing structures and mechanisms for the verification of Convention standards in national parliaments.

It was organised in co-operation with the PACE Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights, at the invitation of the Parliament of the United Kingdom – which shared its experience in this area through its Joint Committee on Human Rights – and welcomed parliamentarians from Croatia, Estonia, the Netherlands, Romania, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.
