This article examines the evolution of the standards of protection of transsexual groups in the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights, in particular with respect to the decisions that concern the violation of the right to sexual identity and self-determination, in the face of refusal by national authorities to modify the sex of transsexual persons in national registries. Aware of the constant tension between the need to protect rights recognised in the European Convention and respect for the margin of appreciation that States maintain in certain areas, the purpose of this research is to verify the existence and consolidation of minimum common standards or norms that the European Court has been developing and applying during its years of activity, and identify which challenges it still faces in this matter. Understanding these elements will lay the foundations for promoting the adoption of state legislative measures aimed at respecting these common standards and achieving an effective protection of the rights of trans people in the European context.
