My new chapter on LGBTI rights, the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights

I am pleased to make available the first draft of a chapter that will eventually be published in a volume titled International LGBTI Law: Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Law from an International-Comparative Perspective edited by Prof Andreas R. Ziegler (University of Lausanne).

The chapter aims to provide a comprehensive but condensed assessment of the current state of human rights protection offered to LGBTI people by the Council of Europe and, importantly, identify the gaps that currently exist in that protection. It 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 version of the chapter and any comments on it will be gratefully received! 

The chapter can be found here:
