Brief Summary

Guide to ECHR case law relating to discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

Extract from Website

The European Convention on Human Rights is crucial for the definition of the rights of LGBT people and the European Court of Human Rights has enshrined these rights in its case law. A new Council of Europe publication sheds light into the case law of the Strasbourg Court relating to discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation or gender identity. The publication written by Dr. Frédéric Edel provides a structured insight into the Court’s extensive case law, first “article by article” and then “issue by issue”. It is a handbook for human rights professionals, researchers and students.
