About JW

Judgement Watch was founded in 2012 with the goal of supporting, monitoring and promoting the implementation of human rights judgments across the globe.

Its focus on domestic and international court judgments (including decisions of UN treaty monitoring bodies on individual cases) covering all human rights – civil, economic, political, social and cultural.

The aims of Judgment Watch are to:

• Support the implementation of human rights judgments by raising awareness and strengthening capacity on follow-up, particularly amongst civil society, lawyers, media, legislatures, the judiciary and other stakeholders.

• Monitor the implementation of judgments by developing methodologies, synthesizing information and assisting partners on implementation projects.

• Promote better implementation procedures at the national, regional and international levels.
