Article on ECtHR Judgments Enforcement in Russia

A group of three Russian authors, Maria Issaeva, Irina Sergeeva, and Maria Suchkova, has posted an article on SSRN on the enforcement of the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights. The article, which has appeared in SUR International Journal on Human Rights (Vol. 8, No. 15, p. 67, December 2011) is entitled 'Enforcement of the Judgments of the European Court of Human Rights in Russia: Recent Developments and Current Challenges'. This is the abstract:

Over the last few years, the issue of the execution of judgments from the European Court of Human Rights by Russia has gained pivotal importance, not only for Russia itself, but also for the whole European human rights system more generally. In this article, the authors analyse various challenges that Russia faces with regard to the execution of the Court’s judgments as they concern both individual and general measures, as well as the country’s achievements in this respect. In particular, the authors examine what has been described in the press as a skirmish between the Strasbourg Court and the Constitutional Court of Russia.
