Deputy-Director Dr Meghan Campbell Discusses the Future of the Human Rights Act on BCB Radio

by | Aug 26, 2016

On August 25th, 2016, Deputy-Director Dr Meghan Campbell spoke to BCB Radio on the future of the UK Human Rights Act, 1998 (HRA). Recently, Justice Minister Liz Truss confirmed the Conservative governments commitment to repeal the HRA and enact a British Bill of Rights.

Similar to past statements from the government, no further information was provided. It remains unclear when a British Bill of Rights would be in place or how this new Bill of Rights would substantively differ from the HRA.

In the BCB radio interview, Dr Meghan Campbell discusses the government’s continued lack of transparency on what a British Bill of Rights means, the importance of maintaining a positive relationship with the European Court of Human Rights and the impact of the post-Brexit political landscape on the future of human rights in the UK.

The interview can be found here (Drive Time Thursday, 5-6pm August 25 at  beginning at 5.35).
