Abstract

The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe (Committee of Ministers) is tasked with the execution and enforcement of the judgments of the Court. The process is based essentially on peer pressure and political persuasion exercised within a forum where there is a genuine commitment to effective enforcement of judgments, but also on a commonality of political interest and often a self-interested tolerance of the practical problems associated with execution. This chapter discusses the role of the Committee of Ministers, its procedures and common features, and recent developments in the execution process.
