Joshua Rozenberg QC (hon) has been covering the European Court of Human Rights since the days when the only way of finding out what the court had decided was to fly to Strasbourg. For years now, successive UK governments have tried to limit their obligations under the human rights convention. And reform or even repeal of the Human Rights Act 1998 is now back on the political agenda. Will anything change? Aided by his reporter's notebook and a rather cloudy crystal ball, Joshua asks what's wrong with human rights.
About the Speaker
Joshua Rozenberg QC (hon) is Britain's best-known commentator on the law. He is the only full-time journalist to have been appointed as Queen's Counsel honoris causa. All other honorary silks since the late 19th century have been practitioners or legal academics.
Joshua is known for his independence, his authority and his ability to explain complicated legal issues with simplicity, clarity and wit. Because he trained as a lawyer before becoming a legal journalist, he is often the first port of call for broadcasters faced with a breaking legal story.
He appears regularly on Sky News, the BBC news channel and other news networks in the UK and abroad.
