Hearings in March

European Commission Courtroom ECHR

In March 2023, the Court will be holding three Grand Chamber hearings.

The case Humpert and Others v. Germany concerns the sanctions imposed on the applicants, teachers with civil-servant status, for going on strike in order to improve their working conditions.

The applicants in the case Verein KlimaSeniorinnen Schweiz and others v. Switzerland, a Swiss association and its members, complain that the State has failed to introduce suitable legislation and to put appropriate and sufficient measures in place to attain the targets for combating climate change.

The case Carême v. France concerns a complaint by an inhabitant and former mayor of the municipality of Grande-Synthe, who submits that France has taken insufficient steps to prevent climate change and that this failure entails a violation of the right to life and the right to respect for private and family life.
