Serious Crime, Human Rights and Criminal Procedure [Hardback] | Add to Basket
Author : Professor Andrew Ashworth
Publisher: SWEET & MAXWELL
Publication Date: 30/05/2002
ISBN: 9780421782907
Jurisdiction: n/a

Based on the 53rd series of Hamlyn Lectures presented by Professor Andrew Ashworth, this book explores the justification for honouring human rights in the context of criminal procedure, and subsequently examines the way in which both the Strasbourg Court and the British Courts have dealt with the problem of whether to uphold human rights when faced with pressing arguments of public interest. The British government's approach to this conflict is also considered.
The book focuses upon some of the key debates in contemporary law and politics, including:
* Are human rights just rhetorical aspirations?
* Are we developing a "human rights culture" in this country?
* Should procedural rights give way in the face of "public safety" arguments?
