What's the Point of the Human Rights Act? with Dinah Rose QC

Tuesday 28th October, 6.30-7.30pm

Army and Navy Club, 36-39 Pall Mall, London SW1Y 5JN

The Conservative Party has announced its intention to repeal the Human Rights Act 1998 and replace it with a British Bill of Rights, if returned to power after the election. The proposal is popular, but has been criticised by opponents across the political divide.

On 28th October, Dinah Rose QC will address Politeia on What’s the point of the Human Rights Act? The Common Law, the Convention and the English Constitution.

She will examine the part played by the European Convention on Human Rights and the Human Rights Act in the English constitution. Do we need them at all? Or are the common law and the Supreme Court a better source of protection for our civil liberties? In the delicate constitutional relationship between judges, parliament and the government, have we got the balance right? If not, how should it be changed?
