MultiRights Seminar : Parliaments - Domestic Courts - ECtHR - and Back?
Amrei Mueller is a post doctoral researcher at the Department of Public and International Law (UiO), and connected to the ECRP project on Judicial Dialogues on the Rule of Law. She will present a working paper entitled “Parliaments - Domestic Courts - ECtHR - and Back?” for discussion.
From the more recent debates on the reform of the ECtHR it is clear that states have to do more to implement the ECHR at the domestic level to reduce the workload of the ECtHR. In some member states of the CoE, there is also an on-going debate about the democratic legitimacy of the ECtHR. The research tries to address both issues by studying the interaction between national parliaments, national courts and the ECtHR.
