Paul Johnson: Chapter on: LGBT People, the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights

Posted: 10 Oct 2020 03:07 PM PDT

I am really pleased to make available an updated chapter that aims to provide a comprehensive but condensed assessment of the historical development and current state of human rights protection offered to LGBT people by the Council of Europe and, importantly, identify the gaps that currently exist in that protection. 
The chapter examines the work of the statutory bodies of the Council of Europe – the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly – as well as the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights.

This is an uncorrected draft of a chapter that will appear in a volume edited by Prof. Jill Marshall (Royal Holloway, University of London) to be published by Routledge on Personal Identity and the European Court of Human Rights.

The chapter can be found here:
