Event description

Description

This full-day workshop will provide delegates with a broad overview of international human rights law and how it operates in the UK. Aimed at individuals and professionals (legal and non-legal) whose work may affect rights, freedoms and entitlements, it will set out the various international legal instruments and their applicability in the UK. More specifically, it will focus on the UK human rights landscape: what rights do we actually have in the UK? How do we enforce them? What does the future hold for our human rights? The workshop will be interactive and include case studies relevant to delegates’ backgrounds.

Objectives

By the end of this workshop, delegates will be able to:

  • Recognise the various international human rights law instruments and understand how these instruments apply in the UK
  • Understand what the specific rights set out in these legal instruments entail and when they are engaged
  • Explain when, how and who can enforce these rights in the UK

Target Audience

This workshop will be of interest to individuals and professionals whose work may affect or touch upon rights, freedoms or entitlements. It may particularly be of interest to individuals who work in statutory services, third sector organisations, or public interest groups or associations. It may also be of interest to legal professionals who do not necessarily work with human rights day-to-day yet wish to gain more knowledge in the area.
