Brexit: Implications for Equality and Human Rights Law

Ebony Riddell Bamber, EDF Research and Impact Director, writes about our February 2017 Brexit and Equality seminar.

Brexit is a key strategic priority for us: ensuring that there is no roll-back on our current protections, and taking steps to embed equality protections going forward, such as clauses in the Great Repeal Bill. Alongside researchers, policymakers and civil society experts in our network, we seek to understand and influence this opportunity for change.

Our first seminar, Brexit: Implications for Equality and Human Rights Law, was a genuine success and has helped shape our approach to advancing equality and human rights post-Brexit. We’ve already had a range of positive feedback and proposals from members – and will be following up with joint initiatives in the coming weeks.

If you’d like to attend the next seminar – or if you missed out this time – register your interest for advance notice.  We’ll keep live-tweeting each event using #BrexitEquality.

A huge thank you to Cloisters for sponsoring the event, and supporting this initiative to ensure the UK continues to lead on equality and human rights protections.
