The Royal Institute for International Relations is an independent think-tank based in Brussels. Its interdisciplinary research is conducted in a spirit of total academic freedom. Drawing on the expertise of its own research fellows, as well as that of external specialists, both Belgian and foreign, it provides analysis and policy options that are meant to be as operational as possible.This report examines the reforms implemented by the European Court of Human Rights from 2000 to 2016 in a comparative approach to the 2011 and 2015 increase in the number judges proposed by the European Court of Justice to the European General Court, to deal with its substantial backlog. This paper aims to describe and analyse the ways in which the ECtHR’s backlog was strongly reduced and to draw some lessons for the management of the EU courts.
