The European Implementation Network (EIN) is a newly established non-governmental, member-based organization set up to champion the implementation of European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) judgments. The EIN’s mission is to build and strengthen the ability of lawyers, NGOs, and applicants to access every part of the Council of Europe (CoE) that can contribute to better implementation of these judgments; to advocate for full implementation of particular cases; and to support more robust structures that facilitate implementation at the national level.

Its work is overseen by a Bureau elected by its members.
