This article comments on four important judgments delivered by the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights in 2017. In the case of Paradiso and Campanelli v. Italy, the Court grappled with sensitive ethical issues of surrogacy and parenthood. The Court’s judgment in the case of Bărbulescu v. Romania set out new detailed principles governing states’ positive obligation to protect privacy in a technologically evolving workplace. In Burmych and Others v. Ukraine, the Court was forced to reflect on its proper place in the human rights machinery of the Council of Europe. Finally, Merabishvili v. Georgia constituted a significant moment in the Court’s understanding of legitimate restrictions of rights.

Keywords:   legitimate restriction of rights, online privacy, pilot judgment, positive obligations, surrogacy
