Event on Implementation of ECtHR Judgments in the UK

On 15 May, the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law and Leicester Law School are organizing an event in London, entitled 'Implementation of the European Court of Human Rights: Opportunities and Challenges for he Rule of Law'. The event will focus on the United Kingdom's implementation record and more broadly on the impact of Strasbourg judgments in the UK. According to the organizers, the speakers will "consider the UK government's recent report 'Responding to Human Rights Judgments' which outlines its position on the implementation of the Court's judgments and responds to recommendations made by the Joint Committee on Human Rights in its 2015 scrutiny report 'Human Rights Judgments'. We will also hear a UK government perspective "from the inside" on the Committee of Ministers and its work supervising the execution of judgments. Speakers will then consider the wider picture of implementation across the member states and will reflect on the process for the execution of judgments and the role of the Committee of Ministers in this regard."

The event will be held at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law in the early evening (at 17h30). Speakers will include Ed Bates, Nuala Mole and Philip Leach. For more information, see here.
