Let’s Talk About Sex Education and Human Rights in Schools

RightsUp #RightNow is a series of mini episodes in the RightsUp podcast series that explores current events dealing with human rights issues.

On 11 January, members of a public bill committee in the UK parliament voted against an amendment to the Children and Social Work Bill that would have made sex and relationship education compulsory in all schools. In this episode of RightsUp #RightNow, we talk to Dr. Meghan Campbell, Deputy-Director of the Oxford Human Rights Hub, about the implications of this decision and the need for a human rights based approach to sex education.
