This chapter aims to identify and review the court and tribunal decisions that are directly relevant to the human rights of disabled people. These are mostly the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights, but the discussion also includes references to the increasing body of case laws that is emerging from domestic courts regarding the issue. References are also made to constitutional court decisions in other jurisdictions, which are slowly being considered as persuasive whenever a difficult or new question of the law arises. The chapter also examines the reasons why there have been only a few complaints by disabled people to the Strasbourg Court.
