ECHR Protocol 15 – Brighton Revisited
Judge Erik Wennerström
European Court of Human Rights

About the lecture:

The Brighton Declaration of 2012 resulted in the adoption a year later, by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, of the amending Protocol 15 to the European Convention of Human Rights, a Protocol that is set to enter into force, following the ratification of all States Parties to the ECHR, on 1 August 2021.

The Protocol contains five modifications to the Convention. Some changes will probably not present the Court with serious challenges or the need for extensive interpretation. There could be amendments, however, that will constitute the starting points of some interesting jurisprudential developments. The lecture will focus on some of these possible starting points.

About the speaker:
