Abstract

The UK's long-lasting non-compliance with the ECtHR's prisoner voting rights judgments is, formally, about to come to an end, at least temporarily. Upon closer inspection, it becomes clear, however, that the UK is seeking to minimize compliance in a manner that does not adequately respond to the Court's reasoning, so that it will only be a question of time until the Court and the Committee will have to revisit the UK's prisoner voting rights regime.
