Emergencies and Derogations

(p.874) 17 Emergencies and Derogations
Human Rights and the End of Empire


Oxford University Press

This chapter deals more fully with the colonial emergencies and insurrections which accompanied the winding down of the colonial empire, of the mechanisms of repression which were used to combat them, and of the derogations to the European Convention which were submitted in response to them. It deals in particular detail with the exile of Kabaka of Buganda, and with the EOKA emergency in Cyprus: the legal measures adopted in response to it, the exile of Archbishop Makarios, and the use of the death penalty there, which triggered the first inter state proceedings, brought by Greece against the UK, under the Convention.

Keywords:   emergencies, insurrections, derogations, Buganda, Makarios, exile, death penalty
