University of Nottingham and the Human Rights and Equality Commission of Great Britain release resources on ‘Making Economic and Social Rights Real’

The University of Nottingham, led by Professor Aoife Nolan, and the Human Rights and Equality Commission of Great Britain have produced a set of publicly accessible, capacity-building tools and resources on economic and social rights.

Economic and social rights is a crucial area of human rights law that has long been marginalised in the UK. This is despite the fact that the rights to housing, work, an adequate standard of living, food, social security, education, water and health are central to human survival and development.

Responding to that gap, the videos and supporting written materials are directed towards civil society, policymakers, academics and others with a background in human rights and an interest in learning more about economic and social rights. They will act as a key resource for a wide range of national and international audiences who are seeking to improve the implementation of these rights in the UK and beyond.
