Resource description

Last week MPs debated prisoners’ voting rights and voted overwhelmingly to continue to exclude them from voting and this week the Protection of Freedoms bill was introduced in order to ‘safeguard civil liberties and reduce the burden of government intrusion into the lives of individuals’: human rights are under discussion and under threat in the UK at every turn argues Conor Gearty, but as his new online project shows, the public are keener than ever to engage in important and topical debates about the right future for human rights.
