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.BACK TO ALL REPORTS
