Judgment concerning Poland

Human Rights building

In the case of Przybyszewska and Others v. Poland, the Court held that there had been a violation of the right to respect for private and family life.

The case concerned the alleged lack of any form of legal recognition and protection available for same-sex couples in Poland.

The Court considered that the Polish State had failed to comply with its duty to ensure that the applicants had a specific legal framework providing for the recognition and protection of their samesex unions. That failure had resulted in the applicants’ inability to regulate fundamental aspects of their lives and amounted to a breach of their right to respect for their private and family life.
