Abstract

This document provides an overview of how a number of national parliaments verify European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) standards, as well as the implementation of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). It is based on the premise that a priority must be placed, by States Parties to the ECHR, on strengthening domestic mechanisms of implementation. This is necessary in order to reinforce the Convention system, both by stemming the flood of applications to the Court and ensuring the full, rapid and effective execution of ECtHR judgments, especially those revealing systemic or structural problems.
