There were developments in the case-law in a wide range of areas in 2017, the Court’s approach being to read the Convention as a whole so as to ensure the coherent and harmonious interpretation of its provisions.
The case-law on Articles 18, 19, 37, 41 and 46 was either clarified or extended. The Court explained its role in cases involving supervision by the Committee of Ministers or where the Court’s judgment was the subject of interpretation by a domestic superior court. It also explained its approach regarding evidential matters and awards of just satisfaction to applicants.
