Joint NGO statement: The Brighton Declaration must strengthen human rights protection in Europe and preserve the integrity and authority of the European Court of Human Rights

In this open letter, non-governmental organizations, including Amnesty International, welcome and strongly support measures under discussion designed to improve national implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights. The organizations also urge all delegations to the negotiations to refrain from endorsing measures which would amend the Convention so as to codify, or seek to prioritise, the principles of subsidiarity and the margin of appreciation or to add new admissibility requirements.
