Overview

Bills of Rights and Decolonization: The Emergence of Domestic Human Rights Instruments in Britian's Overseas Territories / Edition 1

Bills of Rights and Decolonization analyzes the British Government's radical change in policy during the late 1950s on the use of bills of rights in colonial territories nearing independence. More broadly it explores the political dimensions of securing the protection of human rights at independence and the peaceful transfer of power through constitutional means.
