Discussion of the Supreme Court decision in Smith, Ellis and Allbutt v MOD – Human rights and Tort liability – 8 July, 2013

Deaths of UK soldiers in Iraq, the UKSC holding by a majority that human rights are applicable to armed forces exterritorially under Art 1 ECHR

Monday 8 July, 2-4 pm, Jan Grodecki Room, convened by: Professor Francois du Bois
The case arose from the deaths of UK soldiers in Iraq, the UKSC holding by a majority that human rights are applicable to armed forces exterritorially under Art 1 ECHR, and that neither the claims under Art 2 ECHR nor the common-law negligence claims should be struck out. This important case is of interest to human rights/international/public lawyers and tort lawyers, not least because of the way the majority and minority deal with the relationship between human rights and tort liability in this context.
