After years of austerity and in a climate of uncertainty, it is now more necessary than ever to examine the link between human rights and the social justice agenda.

Newcastle Law School and Institute of Health and Society invite you to a joint conference on health inequalities and human rights. Save the date!

The conference is part of the research agenda of the IHS Article 22 project, which aims to understand the law and policy changes we need to secure economic and social rights in the UK.

The conference will include three panels which address three social rights issues at the core of Beveridge’s five giants:

  • Food
  • Housing
  • Long term care

Each panel will include individuals who have first hand experience of the topic area, as well as researchers and practitioners.
