Abstract

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled three weeks ago that Germany is entitled to ban consensual acts between adult siblings. A 35-year-old German man who maintained a relationship to his sister argued that the German legislation violated his rights to a private and family life. In an interview with EUROPP editors Chris Gilson and Julian Kirchherr, Hans Christian Ströbele, a Member of the German Federal Parliament for the Green Party, disagrees with the Court’s judgement and argues that the ban on consensual sexual acts between adult siblings should be abolished.
