Drawing the battle lines: The ongoing standoff between the UK Government and the ECHR

Dimitrios Kagiaros

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

The UK government’s proposed derogation from the European Convention on Human Rights is based on inconsistent reasoning and would mark a departure from the justifications usually offered, writes Dimitrios Kagiaros. He argues that, rather than insulate UK soldiers from court challenges, the derogation could in fact weaken their human rights protections, and that it could signal yet another confrontation between the UK and the Strasbourg court.
