EHRC / SHRC Specialist Consultation on the
In partnership with British Institute of Human Rights and the LSE Centre for the Study of Human Rights
Commissioned by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) in partnership with the Scottish Human Rights Commission (SHRC)
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) and the Scottish Human Rights Commission (SHRC) would like to invite you to participate in a specialist consultation to select a set of indicators and measures to populate the Human Rights Measurement Framework (HRMF). The consultation is being carried out by a research team based at the London School of Economics in partnership with the British Institute of Human Rights (BIHR) and the LSE Centre for the Study of Human Rights. LSE Human Rights Futures is an unpaid advisor on the project.
The research team have drawn up a series of panels for the Human Rights Measurement Framework, based on the good practice framework developed by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). We are now seeking to populate the panels with a set of 'spotlight' indicators and measures for England, Scotland and Wales for each panel, and are undertaking a specialist consultation to ensure that the views of key human rights stakeholder groups and subject experts are fully explored. Your help in identifying the right set of indicators will be much appreciated.
How to help identify indicators and measuresWeb Consultation will run from 21 June 2010 until 12 September 2010
A provisional set of indicators and measures for each panel has been drawn up by the research team. These are set out in the document: 'Proposed panels'.
A Feedback Form sets out the consultation questions and provides space for your comments and suggestions.
The Project Background Paper provides further information on our methodology and rationale, together with a literature review on the development of human rights indicators internationally.
We have also uploaded a 'long-list' of indicators that are being used internationally for human rights monitoring purposes. This is a rather long document and should only be printed by individuals / groups who would like detailed background information on administrative and social survey based data on human rights.
The documents are in Adobe PDF format. You will need Adobe Reader 7 or later to read and submit the forms.
