The European Court of Human Rights and Domestic Violence: Volodina v. Russia.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article addresses the highly significant area of the approach adopted by the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) to the issue of domestic violence. During the past thirteen years, the Court has firmly established that domestic violence can constitute a violation of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), however the way in which this issue has been contextualised by the ECtHR has varied and evolved, namely in terms of which articles of the ECHR have been held to have been violated in such cases. The Court’s recent judgment in Volodina v Russia again raises important questions regarding the conceptualisation of domestic violence by the ECtHR, as will be discussed in this article.
