The British Institute of Human Rights is working to ensure the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill does not lead to a reduction of human rights protections in the UK, and instead builds on the laws we already have, and where possible develop further (not different) human rights protections.

In a short debate, called by Lord Cashman, the Lords will discuss the human rights implications of Brexit. Following shortly after Human Rights Day on 10 Dec, BIHR's briefing flags the concerns of 145 groups across the UK and the call on the Prime Minister to ensure human rights are safeguarded today, during and post Brexit.

Hosted by Baroness Anita Gale, the Women’s Resource Centre organised a Round Table on 7 Dec 2017 to identify and explore key issues for women's organisations in the context of Brexit risks to rolling back equality and human rights legislation, employment rights and measures aimed at tackling VAWG.

This submission sets out shared concerns that 1) human rights protections in the Bill, as it currently stands, will be lessened, and 2) there is a lack of parliamentary scrutiny of significant areas that will impact on people's everyday rights in the UK (20 November 2017)
