Published: 2 Mar 2015

On 26 February 2015, EHRAC, along with 9 other prominent human rights NGOs, signed a joint statement in response to the draft Brussels Declaration on the ‘Implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights, our shared responsibility’. While the statement supports the initiative of the Belgian Chairmanship to dedicate its efforts to addressing the need for more effective implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights, it goes on to address the NGOs’ principal concerns with the current draft, as well as their recommendations for improvement. The Declaration is due to be discussed at the Council of Europe conference in Brussels on 26th-27th March.
