what we do

We monitor and advocate economic and social rights in the UK. Through our research, campaigns, training and events we bring together social justice and international human rights law.

Research

We monitor the UK Government’s compliance with its international human rights obligations. We gather primary and secondary sources and we write reports that are publicly available.

Campaign

We hold the Government and public authorities to account by ensuring that law, policy and practice comply with our international human rights obligations. Our main campaign #1forEquality focuses on the enforcement of Section 1 of the Equality Act. 

Training & Events

We work with charities, local communities and academic institutions delivering training and events relating to ESR and international human rights lawYou can view our upcoming and previous events here.

Partnership

Partnerships are part of who we are. We work with national and international charities, local community groups and academic institutions to raise awareness of ESR and build momentum behind the movement, guaranteeing justice for all.

Just Fair is part of the International Network for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ESCR-Net), which connects 300 NGOs, social movements and campaigners across 75 countries.

Under #1forEquality, we are campaigning with The Equality Trust and 60 other individuals and groups (including Amnesty International, Unison, Runnymede Trust or Women’s Budget Group) to bring to life the socio-economic duty of the Equality Act 2010.

We are working with Sustain: The Alliance for Better Food and Farming to promote the language of the right to food in the sector.

Together with Doctors of the World we have reported the negative impact on the right to health of the access to NHS foreign patients’ personal data by the Home Office.

We are leading with 16 other partners under the UK Stakeholders for Sustainable Development (UKSSD) in the first ever review of the UK’s compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals.

The
Just Fair Consortium

Between 2014 and 2016 Just Fair convened a Consortium of more than 80 local and national organisations that gathered and submitted evidence in the last UK review by the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. Below is a list of members.
