4th Annual Human Rights Journal
2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as the 20th anniversary of the Human Rights Act. The possibility that the UK may, after all, retain the protections offered under the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights goes some way to filling the human rights vacuum threatened by Brexit. But attacks on the independence of the judiciary, the crisis of access to legal representation, and the effects of “hostile” policies all continue apace. This watershed moment in the history of the British approach to human rights calls for an in-depth scrutiny of the various challenges faced by the existing systems of protection.
The 4th edition of the journal will be published at the end of 2018.
