As part of the AIRE Centre’s 30th anniversary celebrations, we would like you to join us – with a cup of tea or a glass of wine - for a webinar on Thursday 5th October where we will share stories from behind the scenes of some of the over 150 cases we have been involved in during 30 years of litigation at the ECtHR.


Do come and join us – but don’t come expecting a training session or a didactic seminar! It is more of an opportunity to hear – informally - from the distinguished litigators and intervenors at the European Court of Human Rights about their experience, the challenges and obstacles faced, and their perception of the impact they had (or didn’t have) on the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights.


The AIRE Centre has worked over the 30 years of its existence on a wide range of thematic areas. This webinar will start with Osman v UK (our first case) and Z and others v UK about the duty on the state to protect. We will go on to look asylum cases, children’s rights and other family relations cases; cases concerning jurisdictional disputes; and LGBTQI+ issues.


It has been a real challenge to select from our archive the cases to talk about. However, we look forward to taking this opportunity to share with you the memories of the experienced litigators and partners of the AIRE Centre who have helped to create “our” ECtHR jurisprudence and to celebrate our work before the European Court of Human Rights.
