Index Number: EUR 45/5181/2022

Amnesty International is concerned at the campaign of hostility directed at human rights and constitutional law academic, Professor Colin Harvey, as a result of his legitimate academic activity. Professor Harvey has been subjected to a years-long campaign from elected politicians, media commentators and political activists on social media designed to undermine his professional academic standing, because of his participation in public discourse on matters such as the constitutional future of Northern Ireland, implications for Northern Ireland of the UK exit from the European Union and the proposed Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland.
