Abstract / Description

This article discusses some important recent Polish judgments and how they have been followed up. For many years Poland has been known at the ECtHR for a series of clone or repetitive cases reflecting structural problems in human rights protection in Poland. However, it seems that the ECtHR has managed to cope successfully with most of these and, as a result, Poland has had to adopt a number of legislative and practical measures. While dealing with the cases the ECtHR developed its jurisprudence (especially with respect to procedural matters) reinforcing the principle of subsidiarity in relations between the national legal system and the ECtHR.
