This chapter gives an account of the reappraisal of the convention which followed the Cyprus cases, and the problems it caused for UK colonial office. It describes the later derogations and the use of emergency powers in Aden, Nyasaland, Northern Rhodesia, Sarawak, North Borneo, and Kenya and in Northern Ireland. It describes how the UK eventually accepted the jurisdiction of the court and the right of individual petition, relating this to the adoption of the policy of decolonization, and the chapter discusses the significance of the Lawless case, and concludes with brief discussion of the Human Rights Act of 1998.

Keywords:   colonial office, derogations, emergency powers, Aden, Nyasaland, Northern Rhodesia, Sarawak, North Borneo, Kenya, Northern Ireland
