Show Summary Details


This chapter examines developments after the period of the empirical study, and during the early period of a new government. It analyses the impact of a significant change in the political landscape on outstanding DOIs and outstanding human rights concerns, arguing that the dominant dynamic between courts and legislatures over DOIs has not departed from the specialisation model of interaction. It includes analysis of the first parliamentary debate dedicated to open disagreement with a judicial finding of incompatibility; a House of Commons motion relating to the ban on prisoner voting.

Keywords: coalition government; United Kingdom Bill of Rights; commission; backbencher motion; prisoner voting; sex offenders register
