Application of International Human Rights Law in Britain

In this paper I shall discuss the impact of the European Convention on Human Rights on the law of England. I do so because the European Convention has been far and away the most influential international human rights text in English law, save (in relation to asylum cases) for the 1951 Geneva Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.
