The fight for human rights in Britain must be renewed | Nicolas Bratza

Human Rights Day is a time for reflection on the achievements and failures in the defence of rights and freedoms. It is for me also a time of disappointment. Disappointment that the human rights debate in the UK has become so polarised and that the untold benefits which have flowed from being a party to the European convention on human rights have been lost in the clamour against the convention system, which the UK played such a leading role in creating.
