2017-02-07 at 09-11-36The CEELI Institute was delighted to be able to host a conference on “Legislating from Strasbourg” to examine how the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights, and other international human rights law sources influence the enactment and implementation of domestic legislation in COE member countries. The program gathered scholars from a number of COE member countries, with primary involvement being from Masaryk University’s Judicial Studies Institute, in Brno, Czech Republic, and the University of Oslo’s PluriCourts Project, in Norway. The panelists looked (with particular reference to the experiences in Norway, Czech Republic and Slovakia) at the impact of international human rights rulings on national courts, ministries, parliaments and society; challenges that national governments face in implementing international human rights rulings; the role of the media in influencing understanding and acceptance of European Court and international tribunal rulings; and the role of national constitutional courts in implementing and interpreting such rulings.
