ECtHR delivers Grand Chamberjudgment in the case of X v Latvia in which reunite intervened

The European Court of Human Rights today delivered a Grand Chamber judgment in the case of X v Latvia in which reunite intervened.

The case concerned the application of the 1980 Hague Convention and its compatibility with the provisions of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

In the proceedings, reunite assisted the Grand Chamber in considering the general approach taken to the examination and subsequent determination of the welfare of an individual child in international child abduction cases.
