Bringing Rights Back Home
The United Kingdom needs a robust system of protecting fundamental human rights while at the same time ensuring that senior Supreme Court justices are more accountable and judicial assertiveness does not undermine parliamentary democracy.
A report from the Think Tank Policy Exchange explores the judicial landscape of the UK’s three supreme courts – in London, in Strasbourg and in Luxembourg (the European Court of Justice) – and the new human rights context in which the judiciary and politicians now operate.
It identifies key weaknesses in the current arrangements and recommends a series of political reforms to create a new constitutional settlement.
