"Backlash, Compliance, and Institutional Architecture: Current Challenges to the Implementation of ECtHR Judgements"

A Panel Discussion with Başak Çalı and Raffaela Kunz

on Monday, 1 April 2019, 12:00 – 14:00 at Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften, Einstein-Saal, Jägerstrasse 22/23, 10117 Berlin.

The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) ranks as the paradigmatic example of a successful international court. And yet, in the last fifteen years, the European human rights system has been haunted by crisis talk. A massive case overload, implementation deficiencies and pushbacks, possibly even amounting to a systemic backlash against the ECtHR, in particular from parliaments and judiciaries, have triggered reform efforts in which the post-adjudication phase shifted more and more to the centre of the debate. Setting out from a contextual analysis of recent judgements of the ECtHR and of the European system’s institutional architecture to secure compliance, our panelists shall discuss institutional and jurisprudential strategies that have been developed to cope with ever more diverse attitudes toward the Convention in European political and legal landscapes.

Panelists:

1.  Professor Başak Çalı, PhD (Koç University Law School / Hertie School of Governance)
2.  Dr Raffaela Kunz  (Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and  International Law, Heidelberg / Berlin)
3.  Alexandra Kemmerer (Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and  International Law, Heidelberg / Berlin) (Moderator)

The event is hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law.

The panel discussion is part of our series MPIL Momentum, a series of lunch talks organized by the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law’s Berlin Office, featuring new research from the Heidelberg Institute and current issues in international law.

A light buffet lunch will be served.
