Human Rights and the End of Empire


Oxford University Press

In the negotiations which produced the convention great difficulty had been met over the drafting of articles dealing with the protection of the right of property, which raised delicate political issues — the right to education, and the right to participate in the democratic process; the last two of which presented acute problems for colonial powers. So these rights were not included in the text of the convention, and came to be covered in a protocol to the convention, signed in Paris in 1952. This chapter describes the disagreements and conflicts between the Consultative Assembly and the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe over the drafting of the protocol, and the serious conflicts which also arose within the UK governmental machine.
