Human Rights, Security, and Proportionality: The Court's Point of View
Friday 5th June 2009
St Hugh's College, Oxford
In this workshop Professor Aharon Barak, formerly President of the Supreme Court of Israel, expanded on his theory of proportionality which he outlined in the FLJS Annual Lecture 2009. He argued that the scope of human rights should be kept as broad as possible, with limitations to these rights dealt with separately and freely by the the legislature.
