What is the UK ESCR Network?

Just Fair is proud to chair and support the UK Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ESCR) Network (the Network).

The Network is a collective of organisations and individuals committed to the promotion and protection of economic, social and cultural rights without discrimination in the UK as a whole and across the devolved jurisdictions.

Network members include non-governmental organisations, charities, academics and universities, as well as campaign groups.

Network Objectives

Our objectives are to work collaboratively:

  • towards effective incorporation of our economic, social and cultural rights in the UK as a whole and across the devolved jurisdictions.
  • to promote the respect, protection and fulfilment of economic, social and cultural rights in the UK as a whole and across the devolved jurisdictions.
  • to hold both UK and devolved duty bearers to account for the respect, protection and fulfilment of economic, social and cultural rights.
  • to advocate for the improvement of protections of economic, social and cultural rights in the UK as a whole and across the devolved jurisdictions.

How we work

The Network meets regularly to share information and good practice, collaborate on campaigns and reports, learn from each other’s approaches, and act in solidarity on ESCR issues.

We have a steering group that meets regularly to provide leadership regarding the work of the Network. The steering group is selected from Network members on an annual basis. The current steering group includes:
