Bright Blue report: Individual Identity – Understanding how Conservatives Think about Human Rights and Discrimination

‘Britain is the home of human rights’ – but Conservative voters and politicians are often seen as skeptical of our human rights framework.

This is according to a report from the independent think tank Bright Blue.  Published in December 2017, Individual Identity (pdf) explores how Conservatives think about human rights and discrimination.

The report addresses the research questions:

  1. What do Conservatives believe about the importance and role of human rights?
  2. To what extent do Conservatives support legislation to strengthen human rights and reduce discrimination?
  3. What role do Conservatives believe human rights should play in British foreign policy?
  4. What do Conservatives believe about the prevalence, and ways of addressing, discrimination in the UK?
