The Legal Implications of a Repeal of the Human Rights Act 1998 and Withdrawal from the European Convention on Human Rights

A policy paper, "The Legal Implications of a Repeal of the Human Rights Act 1998 and Withdrawal from the European Convention on Human Rights", was published today.

The policy paper, edited by Kanstantsin Dzehtsiarou and Tobias Lock, considers the implications of the Conservative Party's plans to repeal the UK Human Rights Act 1998 and to potentially withdraw the UK from the ECHR. 

I contributed to the policy paper which considers, among many other issues, how these changes to UK human rights law would impact on gay and lesbian rights.
