Title"Are trans rights human rights? The case of gender self-ID"
TypeJournal article
AuthorsNicol, D.
Abstract

The article argues that the right to self-identify as a man or woman without conditions does not constitute a human right within the meaning of European or domestic human rights law since the issue involves conflicts between human rights. For this reason, the matter is best left to the United Kingdom Parliament rather than the courts.
