Explainer on human rights and the EU

What are the consequences for human rights if we change our relationship with the EU? sets out Europe’s legal systems in relation to human rights and ‘helps to disentangle some of the issues relating to a complex and fragmented UK human rights framework that draws on two separate European legal systems’.

The explainer by Dr Katie Boyle, University of Roehampton, was published in 2016 as part of the UK in a Changing Europe Initiative.
