The proposal to repeal the Human Rights Act 1998 and replace it with a new Bill of Rights for the UK continues to generate considerable debate and controversy.

In this briefing, written for the British Academy, Professor Colin Harvey considers the implications for Northern Ireland, and in conversation with Professor Christine Bell of the University of Edinburgh reflects on the constitutional implications.
