Press service of the European Court of Human Rights
In a bid to make its case law more accessible, the European Court of Human Rights is publishing fact sheets on case law associated with a number of topics, including "homosexual rights", " homosexuality: criminal aspects", and “transsexuals’ rights”. However, you should be aware that, for the non-expert, these fact sheets can be confusing because they include quite a number of negative judgments which have now been overruled by the Court, but without making this clear.
Find the fact sheets produced by the Press Service here.
