Abstract

Considers the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights with regard to the interpretation of the right to respect for private and family life under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Art.8. Outlines five sub-categories of private life interest, both positive and negative, namely: (1) the right to be free from interference with physical and psychological integrity; (2) the collection and disclosure of information; (3) the protection of one’s living environment; (4) the freedom to protect one’s identity; and (5) the freedom to live autonomously.
