The European Court of Human Rights Project co-organised a workshop on ‘Monitoring Compliance with Human Rights Judgments: What Role for Civil Society?’ with the Human Rights Centre of the Department of Political Science of University of Ankara on 20 January 2010. The workshop was attended by members of civil society groups in Turkey. The workshop discussed the impact of the lack of ‘compliance constituents’ on the implementation of judgments and the ways in which members of civil society can monitor and influence the compliance process.
This is the first of a series of workshops that engage user communities with some of the findings of the research and it will culminate in a policy paper entitled ‘ How to Monitor Compliance with ECtHR Judgments? A Handbook for Compliance Constituents’.
