Summary/Abstract: The paper examines the interference between a right to private and family life of an individual, guaranteed under several international human rights instruments, and rights of sovereign states to expel aliens from their territory. In the times of migration crisis, when European states are facing unprecedented masses of migrants flowing to their territories, this complex legal issue deserves to be given academic attention. The European Court of Human Rights has repeatedly faced the legal challenge of striking fair balance between individual’s right to private and family life granted under Article 8 of the ECHR and general public interests in controlling immigration (which includes enforcing measures of administrative expulsion).
