Originating from a series of public symposia at Queen Mary and Westfield College, this collection of essays sets out a vision of the future of human rights in the UK. The book seeks to dispel some of the myths about judicial protection of human rights. It examines the practical implications of incorporating the European Convention on human rights into domestic law, assessing the issues confronting the government in enacting a Human Rights Act. It also studies three specific rights: freedom of speech, privacy and freedom of movement, to see how they might develop in the future. The book suggests ways in which the courts' procedures could be improved to promote public interest litigation, especially in human rights cases, thus permitting the hearing of a greater number of important test cases.
