In the submission, they argue that the Human Rights Act 1998 (HRA) strikes the appropriate balance between the legislature, executive and judiciary. The HRA harnesses and capitalises on the strength of each institution to work together to protect individual rights under the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), to which the government has reaffirmed its commitment.
They conclude that the HRA brings rights home and in doing so created the necessary institutional space for crafting a uniquely UK approach to the protection of human rights. The architecture of the Act creates a careful and well-thought-out institutional balance between the courts and Parliament, all the while protecting the primary role of Parliament in the development of human rights. The constitutional dialogue that is fostered by the distribution of tasks is a core strength of the HRA and should be maintained.
