Independent Review of the Human Rights Act- New Guide for Responses to Call for Evidence
The Independent Panel tasked with reviewing the Human Rights Act has issued a Call for Evidence on the topic. Organisations and individuals have until the 3rd March 2021 to share their views about the Act and how it works, and these will inform the Panel’s recommendations to the UK Government.
The Consortium, in partnership with JustRight Scotland, has produced a short guide for civil society organisations on how to respond to the Call for Evidence. The guide is designed to help you to share your unique perspective, in areas where civil society organisations can bring their expertise. It is very important that civil society organisations share their views at this stage, so that the Act can continue to be used to hold the government to account on human rights.
