Institutional, policy and economic frameworks – UK Government assessment

Progress assessment

Limited progress

There have been legal or policy changes to improve human rights protections but very limited evidence of sustained improvements in the enjoyment of human rights on this issue

The UK Government has taken some action aimed at strengthening institutional, policy and economic frameworks related to human rights and equality, such as the creation of an equality hub – a dedicated unit that coordinates several equality policy areas. However, much action is incomplete or at an early stage. For example, the strategy to tackle inequalities for Gypsies, Roma and Travellers has not yet been published, and there is no clear substantive progress in implementing the gender equality roadmap. There are also concerns about the potential human rights impact of the loss of EU funding.
