Commentary on Strand Lobben v Norway on Strasbourg Observers

Read Prof. Marit Skivenes and Amy McEwan-Strand’s comment on the recent judgment from the European Court of Human Rights in Strand Lobben and Others v. Norway. The case, which concerns adoption without parental consent as a child welfare measure, raises important issues in relation to determining what is in a child’s best interest, and how this should be weighed against other concerns such as the rights of parents.

The comment is featured on the human rights blog Strasbourg Observers, which “aims to bring new judgments of the European Court of Human Rights under the attention of interested scholars, practitioners and students.”
