Kenneth Clarke discussing with Manfred Nowak
At the talk on the 13th of February 2012, the British Secretary of State for Justice Kenneth Clarke put forward his planned reform for the European Court of Human Rights. Following Mr Clarke’s presentation, Kenneth Clarke and Manfred Nowak discussed whether such a reform would restrict European citizens gaining access to the Court and how the numerous pending applications to the Court should be dealt with. The audience members also took part in the lively debate.
The event was jointly organised by the Diplomatic Academy, the British Embassy in Vienna and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights.
