Suggest new section on laws positive to human rights, covering e.g., when the UK introduced women's right to vote, adoption of the HR act, introduced of same-sex civil unions etc. Also perhaps a section on the detention of immigrants. Joe D (t) 14:07, 13 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]


okay, this could be an absolutely superb article! The history of human right in the uk is fascinating, twisted and rather strange, so in order to it justice we need some structure! May I humbly suggest something like:

  • History of Human Rights (I mean real history - recent stuff in c&a and recent issues)
    • Suffrage (as mentioned above - thanks)
    • Voting age
  • Conventions and Acts
    • ECHR (1950, UK 1953)
    • HRA 1998
  • Human Rights Organisations
  • Recent Issues
    • Internment
    • Surveillance (most observed people in the world from CCTV)
    • ID Cards

hope it helps! I may be able to some stuff myself, but exam season.... Cheers, 22:42, 21 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
