Description This chapter sketches the basic features of the domestic effects of the Strasbourg judgments, namely the inter partes effect and the so-called res interpretata effect. It also presents the typical roles domestic authorities play in the processes of the ECtHR’s case law implementation, and shows their “diffusing” and “filtering” functions vis-a-vis the Strasbourg Court. Subsequently, it problematizes the model of diffusers and filters, and provides a more nuanced account of the domestic actors’ significance in the Convention system. In the chapter, it is concluded that the implementation process and its outcome depend on (1) the number of (domestic) actors taking part in the implementation process, (2) their stances towards the ECtHR’s judgment to be implemented, (3) mutual relations and interactions among these actors, and (4) their respective power within the system and their ability and readiness to act.
