Alternative evening out – discussing the Human Rights Act

The School of Law, Politics and Sociology at the University of Sussex is holding its next “Sussex Salon” entitled “Who’s afraid of the Human Rights Act?” on 16 June at the Brighton Dome – an alternative evening out with an opportunity to participate in a discussion with a panel of experts. The evening will explore why critics argue that the 1998 Act is “insufficiently British”, ask what a proposed Conservative British Bill of Rights would look like, and consider what it would mean to lose the Human Rights Act altogether.

The panel includes Dr Michael Pinto-Duschinsky, Senior Consultant Constitutional Affairs Policy Exchange, Dr Charlotte Skeet, Sussex Law School, Paul Bowen QC Brick Court Chambers and Bella Sankey, Director of Policy for Liberty.

Tickets include a glass of wine and cost £7 (or £5 for concessions). For more information and to buy tickets please see this page.
