Reviews

The great merit of the book is that it is so multifaceted, going far beyond looking just at British politicians criticising the Strasbourg Court. -- Antoine Buyse * ECHR Blog * Endorsement Understanding the nature and purpose of human rights is increasingly important as misperceptions are mounting. Here it is - the information and brilliant analysis that should inform current debate. -- Baroness Helena Kennedy QC FRSA, Principal of Mansfield College, University of Oxford Endorsement The editors have assembled a wide-ranging and authoritative collection of essays. The contributors examine the fundamental legal and policy issues to which the United Kingdom's relationship with European human rights gives rise. There is detailed examination of how the UK's relationship has evolved historically, how strains arising from conflicting jurisprudence and competing judicial and political institutions have been managed, what lessons can be learned from the comparative experience of other European states, and the role of the media in shaping the relationship and in developing or undermining a human rights culture. The book will be an invaluable resource for anyone seriously concerned with the current and future relationship between the United Kingdom and European human rights. -- Dominic McGoldrick, Professor of International Human Rights Law, University of Nottingham Endorsement The European human rights regime is under attack. This in-depth discussion of the UK and human rights with a comparative perspective is most welcome. -- Geir Ulfstein, Professor of Public and International Law and Director of the Centre for the Study of the Legitimate Roles of the Judiciary in the Global Order (PluriCourts), University of Oslo
