Civil Liberty and Fundamental Rights: A Juridical Perspective

Professor Skinner considers two competing views of civil liberty – one, the condition of not being subject to the power of others, and the other, an absence of interference with choices and actions. He explores what this means for 'fundamental' rights, and suggests that re-appropriating the first view might help us to think more fruitfully about current threats to privacy and liberty.
