Translating human rights law into effective policies in health and social care - 28 November 2022

Please note that this event has passed.


This is a hybrid event, with limited availability for the in-person element at King's College London (see Eventbrite).

This lunchtime seminar will explore the role of policy in ‘bridging the gap’ between human rights in theory and in practice for people drawing on health and social care in England and Wales.

It will be chaired by Dr Caroline Green, ARC South London Post-Doctoral Fellow. She will be joined by Alex Ruck Keene KC (Hon), the special adviser to the Joint Committee on Human Rights for its recent inquiry into human rights in care settings, and Nicola Evans, Equality Lead and Head of Advice and Assistance, Older People's Commissioner for Wales. We will discuss some current examples from England and Wales of human rights policies in health and social care and how successful these have been in protecting, respecting and implementing the rights of people drawing on health and social care. We will also discuss what policies could look like for effective implementation of human rights in health and social care.

This event is part of the ‘Human Rights and Social Care Forum’ event series in celebration of Human Rights Month 2022 organised by Dr Caroline Green at the ARC South London situated within the NIHR Health and Social Care Workforce Research Unit, The Policy Institute, King’s College London. To book, visit the Eventbrite link for in-person attendance or online attendance. Or e-mail: caroline.green@kcl.ac.uk for any special requirements.
