Abstract

This report considers the relationship between rights and responsibilities within the context of the ongoing debate on a Bill of Rights and Responsibilities. In keeping with the commitment of the Green Paper 2009 to ensure that any increased emphasis on responsibilities in such a Bill will not erode the protection of rights, this report highlights the potential risks associated with incorporating responsibilities into Britain’s constitutional framework.
