Abstract

This chapter aims to provide a comprehensive but condensed assessment of the current state of human rights protection offered to LGBT people by the Council of Europe and, importantly, identify the gaps that currently exist in that protection. The chapter 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 draft of a chapter that will appear in a volume edited by Prof. Jill Marshall (Royal Holloway, University of London) to be published by Routledge on Personal Identity and the European Court of Human Rights.
