‘Britain is the home of human rights’ – but Conservative voters and politicians are often seen as skeptical of our human rights framework.
This is according to a report from the independent think tank Bright Blue. Published in December 2017, Individual Identity (pdf) explores how Conservatives think about human rights and discrimination.
The report addresses the research questions:
- What do Conservatives believe about the importance and role of human rights?
- To what extent do Conservatives support legislation to strengthen human rights and reduce discrimination?
- What role do Conservatives believe human rights should play in British foreign policy?
- What do Conservatives believe about the prevalence, and ways of addressing, discrimination in the UK?
