Proceedings of the British Academy, Volume 121, 2002 Lectures

Lord Woolf

British Academy

This lecture discusses the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR), which was established due to the atrocities committed by the Nazis during the Second World War. It looks at the scale of the changes that occurred in constitutional arrangements, and considers the fact that these changes have been achieved without damaging the underlying constitutional arrangements and traditions of the United Kingdom. The lecture also considers whether these changes would benefit the public, and studies some of the arguments that are both in favour of and against the ECHR in becoming a part of the country's law.

Keywords:   European Convention of Human Rights, changes, constitutional arrangements, traditions, arguments, benefits to the public
