Director of Liberty keynote speaker at Human Rights and Equality Event in Derby

 

The Regional Equality and Diversity Partnership (REDP) played host to a major regional event for Voluntary and Community Sector groups across the East Midlands at the Derby Conference Centre on Thursday 22 March.

Keynote speaker was Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty – the national organisation working for more than 70 years to raise awareness through the media, aiming to influence decision-makers and increase public understanding about human rights and civil liberties. Her topic was “Human Rights Under Attack: What We Have to Lose.”

The government has started a national debate about whether we should reform the European Court of Human Rights, withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights, scrap the Human Rights Act and create a new UK Bill of Rights.

 

Many people see Human Rights as being more important now than ever – that in these times of anxiety, insecurity and tension, we should be strengthening the existing system, not dismantling it. The purpose of this conference was to help equip the Voluntary and Community Sector organisations with accurate information about the importance of human rights and the process currently underway, so that they can play an effective role in this important debate.

 

Kirit Mistry (Executive Director for Derby & Derbyshire Race Equality Commission) said, “As a member of the Regional Equality and Diversity Partnership’s core reference group, I believe this event in Derby was timely. Front line organisations who attended will clearly have benefited from getting an understanding of Human Rights and Equality legislation and its relevance within the workplace: an understanding that is clearly needed in this austere economic climate.”
