Конституционная и судебная имплементация Европейской Конвенции по правам человека

The author analyses the requirements of the Constitution of the Russian Federation which ensure enforcement of international legal standards of human rights and freedoms as well as the significance of these constitutional provisions for supporting Russia’s application to join the Council of Europe. The article also considers the circle of subjects in within the Russian legal system  responsible for the judicial implementation of conventional rules of protection of the fundamental rights and freedoms translating the supranational regulation in this sphere onto the constitutional level. The author emphasises the consistency of constitutional fundamentals of the constitutional system with the rights and freedoms of citizens, as well as the importance of
the principle of subsidiarity in the European Court jurisdiction as a basis of its interaction with national legal systems – in order to harmonize the positions of the latter and to ensure the enforcement of supranational judicial decisions. The article stresses the need for and the possibilities of the dialogue between national and international courts to help more efficient and effective development of the universal human rights system based on the recognition of both international standards and specific features of national legal institutions.
