New ECtHR factsheet on climate litigation

New ECtHR factsheet on climate litigation

The European Court of Human Rights has published a factsheet on past and pending cases concerning climate change.

The document has been published following the Strasbourg court’s landmark rulings yesterday on three climate cases. The applicants were successful in one of the cases, and unsuccessful in the other two.

The five-page factsheet summarises the three decisions as well as highlighting six pending cases and three which have been declared as inadmissible.

All ECtHR factsheets are compiled by the court’s press service and do not bind the court.
