Im a third year law student at portsmouth uni who is about to attend my rcb briefing. Im writing my dissertation on how the Human Rights Act has effected the rules of engagement. The subject is of great interest to me and i would appriciate any comments or insights into it. I understand the HRA only effects troops in the UK so I only have the conflict in Northern Ireland to reference. I was wondering though if troops are under additional pressure by worrying whether they will be prosecuted in the European Court of Justice for actions undertaken in the defence of the realm serving abroad in Op Telic or Afghanistan. Cheers.
