Opinion: a Bill of Rights for the UK? Why the process matters

Donald, Alice ORCID logoORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0001-8541-3530 (2010) Opinion: a Bill of Rights for the UK? Why the process matters. European Human Rights Law Review, 5 . pp. 459-464. ISSN 1361-1526 [Article]


This Opinion draws on recent research into modern Bills of Rights processes commissioned by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). In this Opinion it is argued that the coalition government must give careful consideration to how (if at all) it proposes to create a Bill of Rights,
including potentially significant obstacles presented by devolution. The author then goes on to identify some principles and policy imperatives suggested by the evidence collected from the EHRC's research project which might inform the design of a Bill of Rights process or against which it might be held up to scrutiny.
