Abstract

Discusses the criteria outlined by the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights with regard to the exceptional circumstances to be taken into account when justifying the expropriation of property without compensation, highlighting the decision in Jahn v Germany (46720/99) on whether legislation of the Federal Republic of Germany requiring the return of state owned land in the former German Democratic Republic, which had been farmed by the applicants and on which they had been granted disposal rights provided that the land was used as agricultural land, which it had ceased to be, breached their rights under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Protocol 1 Art.1.
