The Blackstone's Guide to the Human Rights Act 1998 provides clear, concise coverage of the operation and application of the Human Rights Act 1998, discussing the successes and failures of the Act and the debate surrounding its possible eventual replacement with a Bill of Rights.

The Guide assesses the case law of the European Court and analyses the impact of Convention rights in landmark domestic judgements across a wide range of areas, including terrorism, privacy, discrimination, and criminal law. It explains the interpretive techniques employed by the courts to read legislation compatibly with Convention rights, and maps the UK and Strasbourg courts' divergence in approach to certain areas of human rights protection. It also highlights the aspects of the Act that the courts have not yet clarified.

The new edition of this popular Guide considers all relevant developments since the publication of the previous edition. The book contains a copy of the Human Rights Act 1998 as amended, and the European Convention for the Protection of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms.
