The Human Rights and Discrimination Project
Through the Human Rights and Discrimination Project, we aim to raise awareness and build capacity among advice and non-advice organisations to use human rights-based approaches with discrimination problems faced by migrants.
This project will deliver tailored training for organisations across the UK. It will conclude in November 2018.
We are delighted to be working with barrister Ben Amunwa on training for solicitors and specialist advice professionals. Ben has expertise in employment and immigration law, and has successfully integrated human rights and discrimination law in his cases. He is passionate about sharing knowledge and training with a practical approach.
Watch this space for dates and venues for upcoming training sessions. For enquiries about the project please contact Laura Chilintan at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Basic concepts in the new world of work
Along with the manual above, we have produced a few short videos of barrister Ben Amunwa delivering the project training. In them, he looks at the meaning of some key terms, such as 'worker', and how they affect the ways in which people's employment rights are protected.
The project is funded by the Baring Foundation.
