Breakfast with the President of the ECHR


BREAKFAST with the President of the ECHR - 15 June 2017Strasbourg is undeniably the European capital of human rights. While, on the one side, the European Court of Human Rights oversees the correct application of human rights in the 47 member states of the Council of Europe, on the other side, the European Parliament, through a specific subcommittee, makes sure that human rights protection remains at the forefront of the European agenda.

In order to foster the informal dialogue between these two institutions, the European Parliamentary Association decided to invite to its next working breakfast, on Thursday 15 June, Guido Raimondi, President of the European Court of Human Rights.

Our members will have the opportunity to question him about the activity European Court of Human Rights and discuss the common challenges faced by the two European institutions.

Guido Raimondi is President of the European Court of Human Rights since November 2015. Previously, he has been a judge at the European Court of Human Rights and, prior to that, he has been a member of the Italian Court of Cassation. Under his supervision, the Court monitors respect for the human rights of 800 million Europeans in the 47 member states of the Council of Europe that have ratified the European Convention on Human Rights.

This event was organised with the support of the Amicale du Personnel du Conseil de l’Europe.
