Psychotherapist appeals to European Court after UK university cancels his PhD on transgender regret

A researcher whose university cancelled his study of sex-change regret has taken his case to the European Court of Human Rights.

James Caspian, 61, a psychotherapist who had counselled transgender people for a decade, was prevented by England’s Bath Spa University from pursuing a project it had initially accepted: a study entitled “An examination of the experience of people who have undergone Reverse Gender Reassignment Surgery.” A former teacher training college, Bath Spa was not permitted to grant university degrees until 1992.

Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, Caspian first challenged the Bath Spa University’s decision in the British courts. Now he is taking his case to the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).

“I have been faced with no alternative but to take this case to Europe,” Caspian stated in a press release.

“Too much is at stake for academic freedom and for hundreds, if not thousands, of young people who are saying that they are being harmed and often silenced by a rigid view that has become a kind of transgender ideology and permits no discussion,” he continued.
