Ensuring conformity of domestic legislation and practice with the ECHR and the practice of the Court

Garantir la conformité de la législation et la pratique internes avec la CEDH et la pratique de la Cour

Member States should not only assess draft laws or regulations for their conformity with the ECHR and the practice of the Court but also their existing legal frameworks at any point in time. How are member States delivering on their obligations? How is the ECHR incorporated in domestic law, notably national constitutions? What are the contributions of the executives, the parliaments and the domestic courts?

Les États membres devraient non seulement évaluer à tout moment la conformité des projets de lois ou de règlements avec la CEDH et la pratique de la Cour mais aussi, à tout moment, la conformité de leur actuel cadre juridique. Comment les États membres respectent-ils leurs obligations ? Comment la CEDH est-elle introduite dans le droit interne, notamment dans les constitutions nationales ? Quelle est la contribution respective de l’exécutif, du parlement et des tribunaux internes ?

SESSION II

How does the Council of Europe support national actors? 

Comment le Conseil de l’Europe soutient-il les acteurs nationaux ?

The Court and Council of Europe’s bodies, including the Committee of Ministers and its steering committees, the Parliamentary Assembly and the Commissioner for Human Rights offer numerous avenues and tools to support national actors in ensuring conformity of all domestic action with the ECHR. This session will take stock of what is achieved in this regard and what more can be done.

La Cour et les instances du Conseil de l’Europe, y compris le Comité des Ministres et ses comités directeurs, l’Assemblée parlementaire et la Commissaire aux droits de l’homme offrent nombre de voies et outils pour aider les acteurs nationaux à garantir la conformité de toute action nationale avec la CEDH. Cette session fera le point sur ce qui est réalisé à cet égard et sur ce qui peut encore être fait.

SESSION III

The execution of judgments of the Court – how to achieve further progress?

Exécution des arrêts de la Cour – Comment parvenir à de nouvelles avancées ?

The execution of the Court’s judgments is the cornerstone off the implementation of the ECHR at the national level. Action taken by a State at a specific time following a judgment of the Court should address remedies in respect of violations, including redress for the applicants, as well friendly settlements. What are the roles and contributions of the Committee of Ministers, government agents, national parliaments and supreme courts in execution matters?

L’exécution des arrêts de la Cour est la pierre angulaire de la mise en œuvre de la CEDH au niveau national. S’agissant de l’action menée par un État à un moment précis à la suite d'un arrêt de la Cour, il faudrait évoquer les recours en cas de violation, y compris la réparation pour les requérants, ainsi que les règlements amiables. Quels sont le rôle et la contribution respectifs du Comité des Ministres, des agents du gouvernement, des parlements nationaux et des cours suprêmes en matière d'exécution ?

How can the civil society and National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) contribute to the execution of judgments of the Court?

Comment la société civile et les Institution nationales des droits de l’homme (INDH) peuvent-elles contribuer à l’exécution des arrêts de la Cour ?

Civil society plays an increasingly active role in supporting the execution of the Court’s judgments. National Human Rights Institutions can make submissions before the Committee of Ministers. Several member States involve NGOs in preparing their national action plans regarding the execution of judgments. How can we strengthen the participation of civil society in execution matters? How can we create an enabling environment for civil society to play its role?

La société civile joue un rôle de plus en plus actif en appui de l’exécution des arrêts de la Cour. Les institutions nationales des droits de l'homme peuvent transmettre des contributions au Comité des Ministres. Plusieurs États membres impliquent des ONG dans la l'élaboration de leurs plans d'action national concernant l'exécution des arrêts. Comment renforcer la participation de la société civile en matière d'exécution ? Comment créer un environnement lui permettant de jouer son rôle ?
