"Democracy and human rights in a changing constitution"

Professor David Feldman, Rouse Ball Professor of English Law, University of Cambridge presents... "Democracy and human rights in a changing constitution" It is a challenging time for both democracy and human rights.

To overcome these problems, we need to be clear about core values and must be prepared to stand up to attacks on them. The talk will consider some of the issues which we, as academics and lawyers, have a special responsibility to address for the public good.. Full details
