Dominic Grieve QC has committed to collaborate with a Brunel-based think tank on issues relating to the Human Rights Act and proposals for its replacement by a British Bill of Rights.
Britain in Europe founder, Dr Dimitrios Giannoulopoulos, said about this development: ‘We are delighted to see the former Attorney General take an interest in our think tank, and very excited that we will be able to count on his invaluable support with research and public engagement activities around current plans to repeal the Human Rights Act.
"Dominic Grieve has done phenomenal work for the protection of human rights standards in the UK, and it will be inspiring for everyone in our think tank to have an opportunity to work with him".
As part of the collaboration, the former Attorney General addressed a large audience of Brunel students and staff on February 29, highlighting the significant risks of departing from the European Convention on Human Rights, while also suggesting that it might be time to consider whether a written Constitution was needed.
