The History of The Human Rights Act
Published on 29 Nov 2019
Ready for a human rights history lesson?
The Human Rights Act is now over 20 years old, and we felt it was time to celebrate! It has helped countless people across the UK in defending and protecting their rights. The story of the Human Rights Act dates back to the aftermath of the Second World War, and we’ve got all the details as to why.
EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
