At BIHR we are driven by our expertise in people's experience of human rights in everyday life. Uniquely, we don't simply talk about what human rights mean or what people think about them, we work with individuals and organisations to help them put human rights into practice. Through this work we support others to realise the potential of the Human Rights Act to provide a basic safety net for us all in everyday situations, and to help public services do what they do better. Below you can find a selection of some of our well-respected and often cited case studies telling people’s real life stories of the positive change the Human Rights Act helps to achieve. We would be encourage you to share these case studies, but request that you please refer to BIHR if reproducing them.
