This chapter discusses Articles 8–11 of the European Convention on Human Rights. These articles are considered together due to their identical form: the first paragraph defining the protected rights, the second laying down the conditions upon which a state might legitimately interfere with the enjoyment of those rights. Articles 9–11 protect ‘freedoms’ against interference by the state with activities which an individual may or may not choose to engage in. However, as with other rights in the Convention, some of the rights in Articles 8–11 must be read in conjunction with those in other provisions. For instance, the right to respect for family life has, in some of its aspects, close relations with Article 12, on the right to marry and found a family, and with Article 5, Seventh Protocol, which protects the equality of spouses in private law.
