Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on how the authority and success of the European Convention of Human Rights (the Convention) system has been linked to the special procedures set up, and how these procedures have developed to meet changing needs. The Convention protects mainly civil and political rights. Over the years it has become essential to the new European political architecture, a constitutional element of European public order, an important contribution to European democratic stability and security as well as a prerequisite for efficient inter-governmental co-operation and unification. One of the major, although discrete, elements of the system is the Committee of Ministers and its supervision of proper execution of decisions establishing violations of the Convention. The Committee of Ministers examines in principle the progress achieved on the question of individual measures at each human rights meeting, i.e. today usually once every three months.

Keywords: Committee of Ministers; democratic security; European Convention of Human Rights; individual justice; inter-governmental co-operation; unification
