On 25 May 2017, BIHR comments on the General Election and human rights in The Economist. Online the article appears as “The Tories wisely defer plans to fiddle with human-rights laws”. You can read the online edition here.

 

 As the article notes:

“... the point of the HRA was to make human rights real, not theoretical, and to enable people to access them in the courts and everyday life, argues Sanchita Hosali of the British Institute of Human Rights. Legislation is still necessary for people to pursue such claims.
