The Equality and Human Rights Commission launched a consultation into its measurement framework in January 2017.
In the past, the Commission worked with four frameworks to give a picture of progress across important areas of life in Britain. They are now seeking views on the development of a single measurement framework for equality and human rights.
The single measurement framework will be based on the human rights indicator framework developed by the United Nations. It will provide evidence on structure (the human rights and equality standards the UK must follow), process (what is being done to meet the standards) and outcomes (the experiences of individuals and groups).
It will focus on six ‘domains’, which reflect the areas in life that are important to people and help them to succeed:
- living standards and social care
- security and justice
- participation and private life
Relevant documents are available in both English and Welsh. Written responses are welcomed with a closing date of 21 February 2017.
