Executive summary

Aims of the research

In November 2011, the Equality and Human Rights Commission contracted the Human Rights and Social Justice Research Institute at London Metropolitan
University and Jane Gordon, human rights lawyer and Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics, to examine the relationship between the UK and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in Strasbourg.

The aim was to provide better information to key decision-makers about the impact of the ECtHR and its judgments on the UK. The principal objectives were to:

• analyse ECtHR cases in relation to the UK to assess the circumstances in which the Court has made judgments, including both judgments which were
contrary to those made by domestic courts and judgments where the Court agreed with the domestic court/UK Government position (or where applications
against the UK have been found inadmissible);

• assess how ECtHR judgments relating to the UK have been received and responded to by key decision-makers in the UK; and

• evaluate the implementation of ECtHR judgments and the impact that they have had on domestic legislation and policy, as well as on domestic courts.
