Should we be worrying about a Brexit from the European Convention of Human Rights now, too?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

The Brexit from the EU is now a political fact with all its consequences. Far less media attention has been paid to British criticism of the European Convention of Human Rights, which may face a similar fate unless its Court is changed into an advisory institution. Should we be worrying about a Brexit from the Convention too? This paper analyses the British debate on European human rights in light of developments within the European Court’s case-law. In the author’s view, the British government is somewhat overstating the problems.
