‘The UK’s troubled relationship with Strasbourg has taken a critical turn with the Conservative proposals to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights if its unilateral proposals to weaken the authority of the European Court of Human Rights are rejected by the Council of Europe. This session will explore the future of the UK-Strasbourg relationship in the light of the UK parties’ manifesto positions. It will also examine the wider reform process within the Council of Europe, which seeks to secure the future of the Court in the face of multiple institutional and political pressures.’
