Doughty Street Chambers is delighted to host a seminar on ‘Article 3 ECHR Medical Expulsion Cases: A Paradigm Shift in the ECHR and CJEU’ on Thursday 30 March 2017 at 18:30.


Two recent landmark judgments from the European supranational courts have radically redefined the approach to be taken to Article 3 ECHR expulsion cases concerning serious medical or mental illness.   Understanding the new approach will be crucial to asylum and immigration solicitors acting on behalf of seriously ill or suicidal foreign nationals facing administrative removal or deportation, including Dublin expulsions. The ECtHR Grand Chamber’s judgment in Paposhvili v Belgium rejects the stringent test of N v UK.  In CK and Others v Slovenia, the CJEU has applied Paposhvili to Dublin III returns and supplied important clarification of removing states’ duties in the Dublin context.
