Freedom of expression has been described as the ‘touchstone or cornerstone’ of all rights. In the UK system, it is considered to be one of a very small number of ‘fundamental common law rights’. It is also a ‘Convention right’ under the Human Rights Act 1998, drawn from Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (1950). However, it has always been understood as a right that can be qualified or limited by other rights or interests.
Falling a few days before Human Rights Day 2022, this Seminar looks at three current Bills before the UK Parliament, each of which is concerned with freedom of expression. It aims to examine the three Bills in terms of the issues and challenges they raise in terms of freedom of expression.
This event will be chaired by Professor Dominic McGoldrick, head of the Centre's Civil and Political Rights Unit. Speakers will include:
