The Elan-Cane case reflects an increasing demand in UK society and across Europe in terms of recognition of gender identity and challenging a binary understanding of gender. It is important to analyse whether the ECtHR, the most effective human rights court in Europe, is catching up with these demands that are ever-growing. In this post, I will examine whether the ECtHR is likely to uphold the claim of Elan-Cane in the light of its jurisprudence, and therefore, whether the UK will be legally bound to recognise third-gender identity anytime soon.
