The Institutional And Substantive Effects Of The Human Rights Act In The United Kingdom, Christopher D. Jenkins Oct 2001

The Institutional And Substantive Effects Of The Human Rights Act In The United Kingdom, Christopher D. Jenkins

Dalhousie Law Journal

This article reviews the institutional and substantive impact that the Human Rights Act has on English law through its incorporation of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The Act further directs courts to give special regard to the decisions of the European Court …

Now We Know About Pinochet, But Where Do We Go From Here?, Gerald Robert Pace Jan 2001

Now We Know About Pinochet, But Where Do We Go From Here?, Gerald Robert Pace

Human Rights & Human Welfare

A review of Chile Under Pinochet: Recovering the Truth. Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press (Pennsylvania Studies in Human Rights), 1999. 296pp.

General Augusto Pinochet, who served as military and civil leader of Chile from 1973 until 1990, forged perhaps one of the most authoritarian regimes ever to govern in the Western Hemisphere.
