Seminar: ‘Sexual Orientation and the European Convention on Human Rights: Voices and Perspectives

On Friday 16th May, the Department of Sociology hosted the one-day seminar ‘Sexual Orientation and the European Convention on Human Rights: Voices and Perspectives’. The event was attended by delegates from the UK and across Europe. Individuals from different standpoints – lawyers, judges, activists, and academics from various disciplines – shared perspectives and engaged in dialogue about sexual orientation discrimination and human rights law. The event was organised by Dr. Paul Johnson, the author of ‘Homosexuality and the European Court of Human Rights’ and, more recently, ‘Law, Religion and Homosexuality’.
