by | Nov 10, 2016

Under the auspicies of the Oxford Human Rights Hub, Professor Sandra Fredman, FBA, QC (hon), Director of the OxHRH and Rhodes Professor of the Laws of the British Commonwealth and the USA; Professor Mark Freedland, FBA, QC (hon), Emeritus Professor of Employment Law, Oxford University; Anne Davies, Professor of Law and Public Policy, Oxford University; Judy Fudge, FRSC, Professor of Law, University of Kent; Meghan Campbell, Weston Junior Research Fellow, Oxford University and Deputy-Director of the OxHRH have made a submission to the UK Parliamentary Women and Equalities Committee.

The Women and Equalities Committee is launching an inquiry to ensure strong equalities legislation outside of the EU. Committee Chair, Maria Miller said ‘against the backdrop of growing consensus on the need for robust parliamentary scrutiny of the UK’s exit from the European Union…this inquiry will help ensure that the critical issue of equalities protection is not forgotten as we navigate our future outside the EU.’ The inquiry examines legislation and legal institutions and processes that may be affected by Brexit and considers how to further embed equality principles.

The OxHRH submission explains the current challenges that equality law faces and calls for continued robust rights protection in the UK.
