Draft Report: Reform of the European Court of Human Rights

28/05/2019

On the 21st of May, BIICL hosted a seminar on Reform of the ECtHR: would closer co-operation with national senior courts help? The draft report presented at the seminar can be accessed here. Its authors are now seeking views and comment on its content and its central proposal: the adoption of a rule of procedure or practice by national senior courts which requires those courts, in any judgment rejecting a claim based on the Convention, to include a succinct statement of the reasons for dismissing the Convention arguments, and of the national significance of that claim.

Anyone interested in providing comments on the draft report is welcome to email them to ecthr.reform@freshfields.com by 5 pm on Friday 14 June 2019. Please do feel free to share the draft report with your networks, and ask them to respond in like fashion.
