The domestic implementation of international human rights judgments is considered an essential aspect to assess the effectiveness of regional human rights courts. Both at the Inter-American and European level experts have been debating for years on alternatives to improve the level of compliance with these judgments and devise tools to enhance state engagement in the process. The speakers in this panel, with extensive experience in the regional human rights systems, will explore the scope of the notion of “implementation” and evaluate whether additional levels of impacts can be identified in the process of enforcing compliance and redressing victims.
