Abstract

Explains why the author has changed the negative position on the Human Rights Act 1998 he held during the 1990s and is now opposed to its repeal. Outlines the reasons why he has changed his opinion to favour the Act. Considers the practical application of the Act, focusing on the use of declarations of incompatibility. Examines the positive role of the judiciary in respect of the Act, noting that numerous challenges were made under the Act in terrorism-related cases. Comments on areas in which the Act has not fared as well.
