This SHARES Seminar will discuss the allocation of international responsibility between the EU and its Member States, as well as between the Member States.

Detail Summary
Date 18 October 2013

On 5 April 2013, a draft agreement was concluded on the modalities for the accession of the European Union to the European Convention on Human Rights. The seminar critically reflects on one key aspect of the draft agreement: the allocation of international responsibility between the EU and its Member States, as well as between the Member States. In particular, it reviews whether the agreement adequately addresses the gaps in human rights protection that presently arise from the specific relationship between the EU and its Member States.

During this seminar, four issues will be discussed: attribution and responsibility; the co-respondent mechanism; allocation of responsibility within the legal order of the EU; and the relationship with the case law of the European Court of Human Rights.
