The Human Rights Act 1998 will come into force in the year 2000. This volume explores the significance of this event. How has it come about? What has been the experience of other countries receiving human rights instruments into a developed Western system of law? What will the effect be on the way in which the legal profession thinks about itself? How does this transform the thinking about rights? Does a human rights instrument distort democratic politics?
