Court Reform Compilation Document

The Council of Europe has compiled a large document of over 500 pages which reflects the ongoing reform efforts regarding the European Court of Human Rights of the last few years. It is entitled 'The European Convention on Human Rights : Interlaken,İzmir, Brighton and beyond. A compilation of instruments and texts relating tothe ongoing reform of the ECHR' and is freely accessible online. It includes the key speeches and concluding documents of the three mentioned intergovernmental conferences, reports of the Steering Committee on Human Rights (CDDH), the texts of Protocols 15 and 16 and their explanatory reports. A very useful all-in-one compilation of the current state of affairs on reform. The newest updates on the reform work can be found, as noted earlier, on this dedicated website
