Description of the experience: My main task at the project was to actively research the role of Norway at the European Court of Human Rights (and also Sweden more recently), by looking at all cases where a violation was found by the Court. Through the "coding tree" methodology, I collected both quantitative and qualitative data on human rights cases involving Norway and looked at how the Norwegian Government implemented the judgments (if there is or is not any legislative change, change in jurisprudence, redress at the individual level, etc.). The main databases used for data collection were HUDOC and HUDOC-EXEC.
