Advocacy and implementation

EHRAC pushes for the full and effective implementation of international judgments in its cases to secure justice for those we represent and to help bring about positive improvements to human rights standards in our target region.

We advocate for change in close collaboration with international agencies and NGOs. Our aim is to ensure that domestic laws, policies, and practices are fully compliant with international human rights standards and that human rights violations do not reoccur.

Implementation of judgments

After we receive a judgment, we monitor its implementation.  International bodies can request of states that they pay the victim compensation, reopen an investigation, quash a conviction, or even amend harmful national legislation or practices.

EHRAC drafts legal submissions and delivers briefings to international bodies to push states to make these changes, so that our applicants can achieve redress.

Flags outside the Council of Europe


We collaborate with some of the world’s leading human rights organisations, providing context and evidence on human rights violations and calling on institutions to act.

We  liaise closely with bodies such as the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the Office of the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, and the UN Special Procedures.
