The Human Rights Act: cornerstone of a new Constitution

Our new constitution. The period since 1997 has been one of radical constitutional change.

Indeed, the constitutional reforms since 1997 offer a spectacle, unique in the democratic world, of a country transforming its uncodified constitution into a codified one, in a piecemeal manner, there being neither the political will nor the consensus to do more.
The end-point of this piecemeal process of reform, therefore, is bound to remain unclear. Nevertheless, the reforms that have already reached the statute book will profoundly alter our constitution and our system of government.
This series of lectures will analyse the transformation of our constitution and its significance for the future.
