Discrimination Law: Meeting the Challenges

by | Apr 18, 2014

The Oxford Human Rights Hub was delighted to host Professor Sir Bob Hepple (QC, FBA and Chair of the Equal Rights Trust) to give a seminar on:

‘Discrimination Law: Meeting the Challenges”

Abstract:
Since reaching its high point with the enactment of the Equality Act in 2010, British discrimination law has faced a series of challenges against a background of growing inequality, xenophobia and Europhobia. These include repeals of parts of the Act ,the disempowerment of the Equality and Human Rights Commission and new obstacles to access to justice. Professor Hepple will suggested five ways in which human rights lawyers and activists can try to meet these challenges.
