Abstract

This article outlines the practical implications of Russia’s ratification of Protocol 14 to the ECHR. Protocol 14 to the ECHR was adopted by the Committee of Ministers (CoM) of the Council of Europe (CoE) and opened for signature on 12 May 2004. On 15 January 2010, the Russian Federation was the last of the 47 Parties to the ECHR to ratify the Protocol, which came into force on 1 May 2010. The main purpose of the Protocol is to improve the functioning of the ECtHR, which is currently overburdened by the number of individual applications, by giving it the procedural means and flexibility it needs to process all applications in a timely fashion and at the same time allowing it to concentrate on the most important cases. In particular, the Protocol addresses the following issues: the process for examining applications, a new criterion for admissibility, friendly settlements and the supervisory procedure for the execution of judgments.
