A key finding of this research project was the lack of knowledge of ngos, legal and non-legal alike as well as lawyers about the monitoring of the implementation of the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. We have encountered many lawyers who did not have the knowledge to follow-up their cases. We also met NGOs who were finding the execution process in Strasbourg difficult to understand and follow. This Handbook was developed to address this gap in the knowledge of human rights practitioners. It particularly is aimed at an audience who is new to the European Court of Human Rights implementation process or who does not the knowledge of the process from judgment to implementation.

Translations of the Handbook into other Council of Europe languages are underway. If you are interested in translating the handbook, please contact the authors.

This is a free access recourse. If you would like to post it on your website, please simply inform us at ecthrproject@gmail.com
