about

Since its inception, the European Convention on Human Rights has been a beacon of hope to gay men and lesbians in Europe. Going to Strasbourg: An Oral History of Sexual Orientation Discrimination and the European Convention on Human Rights provides a comprehensive account of how individuals inthe United Kingdom have utilized the Convention, by way of making applications to its organs in Strasbourg in order to challenge sexual orientation discrimination.Combining an exhaustive analysis of Strasbourg case law with nineteen unique oral histories of applicants, legal professionals, and campaigners, this book is the definitive history of the role that "going to Strasbourg" has played in eradicating discrimination and establishing legal equality on thegrounds of sexual orientation in the UK.
Paul Johnson is Professor of Sociology at the University of York. His research focuses on the relationship between law and sexual orientation, and his recent publications include Law, Religion and Homosexuality (with Robert M. Vanderbeck) and Homosexuality and the European Court of Human Rights.
