Election Update – The Week In Human Rights News

The General Election is drawing closer and closer, and it’s all heating up for human rights, with the parties revealing more related policies.

First things first – have you seen our whizzy Election Manifestos Special?  We’ve broken down all the manifestos so far into bite-sized chunks of human rights policies. Plus, it’s animated! Go on, give it a look.

Secondly, if you’ve got this far and haven’t yet registered to vote, you can do so here (it only takes 5 minutes). Registrations close on 22 May.

RightsInfo is also looking for a Creative Director. For more information on the role and how to apply, click here.
