Recent ECtHR Case Law in Family Matters

Visit to the European Court of Human Rights included (tbc)


This seminar will present major judgments related to family matters issued by the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in 2019, mainly on:

  • Parental child abduction
  • Parental rights, pre-adoption foster care and adoption

  • Children in European migration law
  • LGBTIQ rights and gender identity

It will provide participants with a detailed understanding of this recent jurisprudence. The spotlight is centred on Article 8 (respect for private and family life). The analysis of the case law of the ECtHR concentrates not only on the legal implications but also on social, emotional and biological factors.
