Dear Madam Chairperson,
The AIRE Centre, Amnesty International and the International Commission of Jurists welcome the resumption of the work on the accession of the European Union (EU) to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). Our organisations followed the previous intergovernmental work and contributed with substantial written comments on various issues addressed in the Draft revised agreement on the accession of the European Union to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (see Annex).
