The continuing impact of Brexit on equality: the findings

On 26 April 2018, the Oxford Human Rights Hub (OxHRH) and The UK in a Changing Europe hosted ‘The Continuing Impact of Brexit on Equality Rights’ workshop to explore legal and policy strategies to promote equality and ensure a positive and mutually beneficial relationship between the UK and the EU institutions on the development of equality post-Brexit.

This report looks at four pivotal areas that were discussed at the workshop;

  • How will new legislation on equality be generated without the impetus of the EU?
  • How will the EU (Withdrawal) Bill affect equality rights? And can the Equality Act and the
    Human Rights Act be used to bolster any ‘losses’?
  • What is the future relationship between UK courts and he Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU)?
  • Can labour rights be front and centre in future trade negotiations?

This report was written by Sandra Fredman, Director of the Oxford Human Rights Hub (OxHRH); Alison Young, University of Cambridge and Meghan Campbell, Lecturer in Law, University of Birmingham and Deputy Director of the OxHRH.
