Year: 2019

This paper, written by Professor Lorna Woods, explores the intersection between the duty of care and fundamental freedoms, in particular the right to freedom of expression.

The detailed paper outlines the human rights framework from a British perspective taking into account the impact of the European Convention on Human Rights and the case law on that and then considers how the various design techniques and business choices could be assessed from a rights-based perspective.
