About The Future of Human Rights in the United Kingdom

Originating in a series of public symposia at Queen Mary and Westfield College, this book of essays sets out a vision of the future of human rights in this country. It will be of interest to non-lawyers as well as to lawyers who are interested in this topical issue.

The book tries 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. It also looks at three specific rights: freedom of speech, privacy and freedom of movement to see how they might develop in the future. Finally it 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.

“…his study on the future of human rights in the United Kingdom is an excellent up-to-date analysis of the potential for legal human rights protection in the UK, including the more theoretical aspects.” –  Eileen Wood, Immigration and Nationality Law and Practice

“In a provocative and engaging collection of essays Singh charts the emergence of the concept of human rights in common law and the protection of human rights through statutory interpretation.” –  Susan Edwards, New Law Journal

“Rabinder Singh suggests that the challenge at the end of the twentieth century is not whether there are human rights but how to make them effective. The ideas in this book, with its emphasis on theory and practice, are likely to bring us closer to meeting this challenge.” –  Stephanie Palmer, Cambridge Law Journal
