Reinforcement of the ECHR's Authority: the Role of the Parliamentary Assembly

The speaker in this MultiRights seminar is Andrew Drzemczewski, the Head of the Parlamentary Assembly’s Legal Affairs and Human Rights Department.

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, composed of national parliamentarians, elects judges to the Strasbourg Court and also plays a key role in consolidating and reinforcing ECHR (the European Convention on Human Rights) standards in member states. The speaker will provide an overview of work carried out by this institution.

Andrew Drzemczewski has co-authored the chapter called "The Work of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe" in the recently published book "Parliaments and Human Rights".


The MultiRights seminars are organised by the MultiRights project on the multi-level human rights judiciary. They provide a forum for discussions for researchers from various backgrounds, including law, philosophy and political science. The seminars take place on a regular basis on Tuesdays and are open for all.
