This seminar will provide participants with a detailed understanding of the recent jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) related to family matters. The spotlight is centred on Article 8 (respect for private and family life) in conjunction with Article 14 (prohibition of discrimination) and Article 12 (right to marry).
The case law of the ECtHR concentrates not only on the legal implications but also on social, emotional and biological factors. The seminar will explain how legal practitioners can make best use of this case law in their day-today practice.
Participants will furthermore discuss family law issues of migration and, on the eve of Brexit, the consequences of Brexit when safeguarding fundamental rights, especially children’s rights in the UK.
