Podcast on the Importance of the Court

The House of Wisdom Podcast has just released the episode Does the European Court of Human Rights Matter? In the episode, Dr. Rumyana van Ark (Researcher in (Counter-)Terrorism and Human Rights at the Asser Institute) discusses the importance of the European Court of Human Rights. Here is a description of the episode:

'Current UK Home Secretary, Suella Braverman argued that the European Court of Human Rights is an interventionist, politicised, foreign court and its convention, the European Convention on Human Rights, doesn't allow the UK to 'deal with illegal migration' due to human rights claims. In this episode we interview Dr Rumyana Van Ark to review the position adopted by Braverman in order to discuss the important role the ECHR has played in protecting the rights of individuals and the manner in which it has helped deal with some of most important human rights issues within the region.'
