The British Institute of Human Rights regularly comments in national, regional and international media on human rights protections in the UK, what this means for people here at home and the wider implications of our domestic debates for European and International human rights systems.

Driven by our expertise in people’s experiences of human rights law in everyday life

Uniquely, because BIHR provides non-technical information on human rights for ordinary people and runs programmes with public officials to use human rights in their everyday work, our comment and analysis is not just legally sound it is also based on people’s real life experience.


Our spokespeople

Comments and analysis is provided by:

      Stephen Bowen, Director of the British Institute of Human Rights

      Sanchita Hosali, Deputy Director of the British Institute of Human Rights
