This study seeks to analyse the ever-shifting dynamic in the judicial ‘dialogue’ taking place between the domestic courts of the UK and the European Court of Human Rights. Endorsing the view that s.2 of the Human Rights Act 1998 is the principal ‘gateway’ through which this important dialogue can occur, it focuses in particular on the potential implications should a new UK Bill of Rights include a modification of that provision.
