Implementation of the provisions of the Brighton Declaration
Origin: Adopted at the 1146th meeting of the Ministers’ Deputies (20 June 2012).2012 - Third part-session
- European Convention on Human Rights
- additional protocol
1. The Committee of Ministers decided at its 122nd Session on 23 May 2012 to ask the Steering Committee for Human Rights (CDDH) to submit by 15 April 2013 a draft protocol amending the European Convention on Human Rights on the questions dealt with in paragraphs 12b, 15a, 15c, 25d and 25f of the Brighton Declaration. This draft protocol should then be adopted by the Committee of Ministers by the end of 2013.
2. Furthermore, following up paragraph 12d of the Brighton Declaration, the Committee of Ministers has asked the CDDH to prepare, also by 15 April 2013, a draft optional protocol to the Convention relating to advisory opinions. The Committee of Ministers will thereafter decide whether to adopt it.
3. Other points dealt with in the Brighton Declaration may, if necessary, give rise to the drafting of amendments to the Convention if, having considered the matter, the Committee of Ministers deems this appropriate.
