Abstract:     
Ten years after its famous ruling in the case of Christine Goodwin v UK of 11 July 2002, the European Court of Human Rights (hereafter the Court) is required again to rule on the compatibility of the impediments that prevent transgender people from marrying a person who is of the same biological sex with the European Convention on Human Rights (hereafter the Convention). While the Goodwin judgment concerned the United-Kingdom, this new case, Joanne Cassar v. Malta, concerns the small and deeply Catholic island of Malta.
