Military Human Rights Stories

Today the Government has announced it will repeal our Human Rights Act.

In all its messaging, there has been no recognition of the enormous benefits the Human Rights Act has brought to so many, including service personnel and their families.  Many of the people our charity supports are enormously concerned at the Government’s proposals.

Told by service personnel or their families that have directly benefited from the Human Rights Act, our short series of Human Rights Stories aims to provide examples of some of these cases.  Links to the stories are listed here but can also be accessed individually via our News tab, above.  Full authority is given for the blogs to be reproduced.

A more detailed response to the Government’s Independent Review of the Human Rights Act can be accessed here:

A blog by our Director for the British Institute of Human Rights entitled Why the Human Rights Act Matters to Members of the Armed Forces – published on Human Rights Day 2021 – can be accessed here:
