JR and others v Greece - what does the court (not) say about the EU-Turkey statement

Research output: Memorandum/expositionCase noteProfessional

Abstract

J.R. and Others v Greece (application 22696/16) is the first case in which the European Court of Human Rights deals with the implementation of the so-called EU-Turkey Statement. It sparked the concern of NGOs, who argue that it ‘gives legitimacy to conditions in hotspot and detention’ under the EU-Turkey Statement. This blog post examines whether J.R. and Others indeed legitimises it and, more generally, what (if any) the implications are for the EU-Turkey Statement.
