The Human Rights Act and Britain’s European Futures

Tobias Lock

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site


In this extended article, Tobias Lock explores the implications of potential human rights reform in Britain. He writes that a repeal of the Human Rights Act would not necessarily require the UK to leave the European Convention on Human Rights. Should Britain leave, however, he argues that its future in both the Council of Europe and the European Union would be far from certain.
