Why we need human rights (5) - Cases since 1975 - Interesting links

Human Rights within the UK are now well and truly on the political agenda.  In four recent posts, I have looked at some situations where human rights law has undoubtedly been at the forefront of improvements to our domestic law.

A Research Briefing issued by Parliament on 22nd May contains a summary of human rights cases involving the UK since 1975.  It makes for interesting reading.  The cases are divided into two time periods: 1975-2000 and 2001 to the present day.  The Human Rights Act 1998 came into force on 2nd October 2000.
