Check on Welsh Government progress

Our approach

The UK has signed and ratified seven UN human rights treaties. By doing so it has committed to respect, protect and fulfil the human rights standards they contain. In order to help you monitor how well the UK and Welsh Governments are putting these duties into practice, we have conducted a progress assessment for 43 distinct human rights sub-issues. These sub-issues are grouped under seven broad themes with each being awarded a ‘progress status’. This ‘progress status’ is based on what actions, if any, the UK or Welsh Government has taken in relation to that sub-issue.
