This new edition has been extensively updated and revised. Developments such as the growing importance of the ECHR, the increased commitment of the EC to human rights, and the election of a Labour government in the UK which is determined to increase respect for rights and civil liberties have necessitated substantial rewriting in some parts.

A new section on equality and discrimination law has been added. Material has been added or rewritten on the role of human rights in the EU, the growing recognition of the importance of monitoring and enforcement systems, and different approaches to the issue of privacy, amongst others. New legislation, such as the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, is also discussed.
