LCHR is very pleased to publish our latest briefing, “Our human rights: six case studies that show how human rights help ordinary people“. The briefing details six indispensable case studies for showing how human rights help ordinary people.
As we distill our message on human rights for the election campaign, it’s vital to focus on concrete examples of how human rights can have a positive impact on people’s lives. This will help to challenge the narrative that human rights only benefit unpopular groups in society.
The case studies we have selected include cases where human rights have helped rape victims, elderly people in hospital, LGBT people, and disabled people fighting the bedroom tax. They also include a reminder that human rights can help child abuse victims.
