This is a follow-up report to the EHRC’s 2015 inquiry into non-natural deaths of adults with mental health conditions who were detained in prisons, police custody or psychiatric hospitals between 2010-13 in Great Britain.
The EHRC inquiry found that serious mistakes were contributing to the number of deaths, and developed a series of recommendations for the various organisations involved.

 

The Commission’s first Strategy Statement covers the period 2016 – 2018 and sets out the strategic goals to guide the IHREC’s work over the next three years. The purpose of this strategy is to contribute to an inclusive Ireland where human rights and equality are respected, protected and fulfilled for everyone, everywhere.

Is Britain Fairer?

In 2010, the Commission produced its first report on equality (How Fair is Britain?) and separate report on human rights (the Human Rights Review) in 2012. Is Britain Fairer? is the Commission’s follow-up report on both equality and human rights. This report outlines our findings and sets out the challenges for the future.
