CDDH Report on ECHR in European and International Legal Order

Recently, the Steering Committee for Human Rights (CDDH) has published a new report. It was written at the request of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe and adopted already in 2019, but only published at the end of last year. The report aims to offer, in the authors' words "an in-depth analysis of the place of the European Convention on Human Rights in the European and international legal order. It is intended to assist States Parties in enhancing legal certainty with respect to their obligations under the Convention and other bodies of law." The report can be found in open access online here.
