On 30 September 2015, within the framework of the Council of Europe project, the official website of the Government Representation before the European Court of Human Rights was launched.
The website is created with an ultimate goal to make the execution of the European Court of Human Rights judgments more efficient, in line with the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers new principles adopted based on the Brussels Declaration.
The reason for adopting such new approaches is that the Council of Europe is facing the challenge of improving the efficiency of the activities of European Court of Human Rights.
The successful implementation of this fundamental issue depends on the implementation of a number of basic requirements. In particular, the targeted and institutional cooperation of the States’ representatives before the European Court of Human Rights with parliament, courts, other state authorities and civil society organisations in the scope of execution of Strasbourg Court judgments, is important.
In that regard, the Agent’s website is the first ever experience in the Council of Europe system and will be one of the important tools making the international documents on human rights protection more accessible, and the mechanisms for legal protection provided by these documents – available to citizens. This will raise awareness and promote effective functioning of human rights protection mechanisms. This will increase the level of targeted and institutional cooperation with the execution of judgments.
During the event an awards ceremony took place. For contribution in strengthening the relations with the European Court of Human Rights and for faithful performance of duties, rewards were given by the order of Gevorg KOSTANYAN, Prosecutor General, Armenian Government Representative before the European Court of Human Rights.
