This new edition of Lester, Pannick and Herberg: Human Rights Law and Practice has been substantially re-written to take account of the major changes which have occurred in this area of the law. It includes not only an up-to-date summary of European and UK human rights law but also wider international and comparative case law. It places this subject within its wider parliamentary context and connects with other jurisdictions.
Issues arising under the Human Rights Act, such as freedom of expression, conscience and belief, freedom of assembly and fair trial receive comprehensive treatment within the text. International Human Rights codes and comparative human rights law elsewhere in the Commonwealth, Ireland and the United States are also discussed.
With specific chapters analysing the political history and the role of parliament in its conception and enforcement, this practical book covers all the information you need to interpret the Human Rights Act 1998 and this complicated area of law.
