Brexit

This Practice Note makes several references to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), incorporated into UK law by the Human Rights Act 1998 (HRA 1998). Brexit has had no automatic impact on either the HRA 1998 or the incorporation of the ECHR provided for by the HRA 1998. The ECHR is an international treaty that protects the human rights of people in countries that belong to the Council of Europe, which is an entirely separate body from the EU. The UK continues to be a member of the Council of Europe.

Note that the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement provides that the deal does not alter the UK’s obligations under the ECHR and that the deal can be terminated in the event of either side denouncing the ECHR.
