Statement and proposals of the Conference of INGOs on the ECHR
STRASBOURG 15 MARCH 2018
The Conference of INGOs of the Council of Europe welcomes the initiative of the Danish Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers to continue the process of reform of the European Convention on Human Rights system, initiated in Interlaken in 2010. However, many provisions in the Draft Declaration of 5 February 2018 need to be rewritten in substance and in its wording in order to truly meet the future requirements and challenges of the system of protection of human rights in Europe. The Conference of INGOs transmitted its declaration and proposals to the members of the Steering Committee on Human Rights and the Permanent Representations of the Member States of the Council of Europe.
