You may remember the very successful British Institute of Human Rights (BIHR) Human Rights Tour event held in Shrewsbury in October 2014. We are delighted that once again we’re holding the event in partnership with BIHR – this time in Oswestry on 16 February – as part of their 2017 Human Rights Tour. The event aims to raise awareness about human rights and their relevance in everyday life, and provide space for debate and discussion.
BIHR will provide a basic introduction to the law that protects our human rights in the UK, and together we will explore what the Human Rights Act is and how it is relevant and real to us all in our everyday lives today. There will be an opportunity to engage in some of the important debates going on about the future of our human rights law, and the final session will explore the relevance of human rights in our local rural context.
The day will use a combination of presentations, interactive sessions, discussion and creative activities, providing a timely opportunity to explore the law, everyday practice and the way human rights are portrayed.
Everyone is welcome to attend. More information is available here, from FRESh on 07773 644 714 (answerphone), or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
