We invite you to read the study authored by dr hab. Marek Świerczyński, university professor and dr Zbigniew Więckowski, published as part of the series “Opinions and Analyses of the Institute De Republica”.
The development of guidelines for online dispute resolution (ODR) mechanisms was already undertaken in the Council of Europe in 2016. The Council of Europe – European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ) then carried out a feasibility study of the action to develop guidelines to ensure compliance with Articles 6 and 13 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (ECHR). It was followed up by the CDCJ’s drafting of the Guidelines. The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted the Guidelines on 16 June 2021.
The Guidelines concern the use of new technologies in existing court proceedings and the way in which the judicial guarantees of the Convention may be safeguarded in the case of using electronic dispute resolution mechanisms.
