Equality and Human Rights

Facilitator Lucy Finchett-Maddock

7-9.30pm Tuesday 14 November 2017

Learning resource centre at the City Clean depot. Upper Hollingdean Road, Brighton. BN1 7GA

This session will summarise the law of human rights within England and Wales,

enshrined in the Human Rights Act (HRA) 1998, bringing ‘convention rights’ (from the

European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR)) into our domestic legislation. The

relationship between the ECHR and HRA will be discussed, as well as summarising

the relevant rights protected, the practical enforcement of the HRA within our law

and the resultant protection of rights, as well as the debates surrounding repealing

the HRA 1998.

Furthermore, equality and anti-discrimination legislation will be summarised, with

specific reference to the protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010, and

some of the discussions around formal and substantive models of equality and how

these are expressed (or otherwise) through law.
