EHRC Human Rights Measurement Framework

In Winter 2011, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) published the Human Rights Measurement Framework (HRMF), a new set of indicators that brings together information and evidence for analysing and assessing human rights in Britain.

The framework, developed by a team at the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion, with the British Institute of Human Rights, will enable the Commissions, Government, public bodies, NGOs and others to evaluate compliance with, and progress towards, the implementation of human rights in Britain. The ‘prototype’ framework covers five rights that are domestically enforceable under the Human Rights Act, and three rights from international instruments that the UK is signed up to.
