Dr Stuart Wallace writes for Oxford Human Right’s Hub on The Bill of Rights Bill
The blog is titled “One Step Forward and Two Steps Back – The Bill of Rights Bill and Overseas Military Operations”.
School of Law academic Dr Stuart Wallace, author of The Application of the European Convention on Human Rights to Military Operations published by Cambridge University Press, has written a blog post for the Oxford Human Right’s Hub on the Bill of Rights Bill and Overseas Military Operations.
For years the Human Rights Act has provided a path for those who suffered during overseas operations, both soldiers and innocent victims of conflict, to shine a light on wrongdoing and seek justice before the UK’s courts. The Bill of Rights Bill seeks to destroy that path.
Dr Wallace’s blog discusses how the proposed changes to the law in the UK from the Human Rights Act 1998 to the Bill of Rights Bill will remove “an important tool in holding the British government to account for the failings of the Ministry of Defense and others during overseas military operations”.
