This textbook presents a detailed critical analysis of the legal protection of civil liberties in Britain. It sets out to cover the main topics generally dealt with on civil liberties courses in an accessible manner while providing detailed examination of areas of particular academic interest.
This book considers the theoretical background against which to measure the protection of civil liberties in practice and it examines the influence of the European Convention on Human Rights and the deficiencies of the traditional constitutional arrangements. It also covers freedom of expression including freedom of information and assembly, and it evaluates the extent to which privacy interests receive protection in UK law. The book also examines freedom of the person with particular emphasis on the changing nature of safeguards for suspects in police custody, and considers anti-discrimination measures and equal treatment for individuals under the present law.
