In order to identify how equality bodies could best contribute to developing European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) jurisprudence, the Equinet Equality Law Working Group monitored Article 14 cases to identify those that are directly relevant to equality and non-discrimination and the work of equality bodies. The Group sought communicated cases relating to equality and non-discrimination to consider opportunities to contribute by way of a potential third-party intervention (TPI) to the ECtHR. To this end, the Working Group has produced a Compendium of two years of Article 14 cases from 1st March 2017 until 28th February 2019 from the ECtHR.
In order to support this work, the Group has monitored relevant Article 14 judgments from the ECtHR. The publication therefore considers the sorts of discrimination issues which have recently been considered by the ECtHR; the approach it takes to Article 14 cases; and the intricacies of the legal tests it applies.
The Compendium provides definitions of discrimination and discusses the differences in treatment. It looks at the scope and suspected grounds, along with several other characteristics in the identified Article 14 cases. It also touches upon the gender perspective in some cases of discrimination and discusses the influence of international law, before drawing conclusions and general observations.
