This seminar will examine the recent developments concerning Article 8 ECHR and housing law. This will include both domestic developments and an analysis of what can be learnt from recent decisions of the European Court of Human Rights. The speakers will draw on these developments to illustrate the areas in which Article 8 still has value and will identify specific legal problems and scenarios in which it may provide an answer.
