Inquests Following Deaths In The Community: Protecting The Right To Life Webinar
Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights is the right to life and includes an obligation to hold an enhanced investigation into a person’s death in certain circumstances. An Article 2 compliant investigation is often vitally important in order to identify and learn from state failings, and an equally important way for bereaved families to ensure that the same failings are not repeated.
In this free webinar held on 7 January 2021, Anna Morris, Kate Stone & Christian Weaver from Garden Court North Chambers Inquests and Inquiries team discussed the development of the law on Article 2 as it relates to deaths in the community and the circumstances in which Article 2 might arguably be engaged.
