Invitation to the launch of the European Implementation Network in Strasbourg, 2 December 2016

Friday 2 December 2016, 1630-1900
European Court of Human Rights, Strasbourg

Panel discussion followed by drinks reception

The European Implementation Network (EIN) is a non-governmental organisation established to champion the implementation of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. Partnering with national NGOs from across the Council of Europe, EIN serves as a bridge between Strasbourg and civil society working across the region to advocate for the full, effective and rapid implementation of judgments.

The EIN has worked as a project since 2014 and is now about to enter a new phase as a standalone entity in Strasbourg. The launch will feature a roundtable discussion that aims to encourage an exchange of views on implementation and to reflect on how compliance can be improved and speeded up. Speakers include:

  • Prof. Başak Çali, Co-founder of the European Implementation Network and Professor of International Law, Hertie School of Governance
  • Christos Giakoumopoulos, Director, Human Rights Directorate, Council of Europe
  • Judge Işil Karakaş, Vice-President, European Court of Human Rights
  • Prof. Philip Leach, Director, European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (Chair)
  • Nils Muižnieks, Commissioner for Human Rights, Council of Europe

A drinks reception will follow the panel discussion.
