Abstract

Does Britain need a Bill of Rights? This case examines a key issue for constitutional reformers. Using the format of an imaginary television debate, it looks at four propositions: that the status quo be maintained; that a series of specific laws is needed; that a new Bill of Rights is needed; and that incorporation in UK law of the European Convention on Human Rights is the way forward. The case will be of enormous interest to all students of British politics. It could also be used on courses which examine particular aspects of human rights. The case could be taught for the duration of one or more seminars, depending on the level and intensity of the course.
