ERA Seminar on ‘Recent ECtHR Case Law in Family Matters’ – Strasbourg 13-14 February 2020


On 13-14 February 2020, ERA (Academy of European Law) will host a Seminar in Strasbourg to present the major judgments related to family matters issued by the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in 2019. The focus of the presentations will be mainly on:

  • Children in European migration law
  • Parental rights, pre-adoption foster care and adoption
  • Parental child abduction
  • Reproductive rights and surrogacy
  • LGBTQI rights and gender identity

The Seminar, organised by Dr Angelika Fuchs, will provide participants with a detailed understanding of this recent jurisprudence. The focus will be placed, in particular, on Article 8 ECHR (respect for private and family life) and the analysis of the case law of the ECtHR will tackle the legal implications but it will also extend to social, emotional and biological factors.

The opening speech will be given by Ksenija Turkovi?, Judge at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

This event is organised with the support of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union
