Project description:

The research examines the Icelandic Supreme Court’s case law on account of a 1998 legislation. The legislation granted administrative power (subject to judicial review) to determine boundaries between private and public land in Iceland. The legislature opted out of enacting special evidentiary rules, and chose to adopt procedural rules to safeguard the human rights of all relevant parties. This approach was tested by the ECtHR, who concluded that the 1998 legislation, and the case law are not in violation of the ECHR (right to property, and right to a fair trial).
