An exciting event happening in Jersey, British Institute of Human Rights - Human Rights Tour Jersey, 24 March 2017 - hosted by JCRAG
The Jersey Cares; Refugee Aid Group (JCRAG formerly Jersey Calais Refugee Aid Group, name change in progress) have invited the British Institute of Human Rights (BIHR) to the island to hold the free one-off event as part of the nationwide campaign 'March for Human Rights'. BIHR are visiting eight cities around England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and now the Channel Islands to hold Tour events that aim to raise awareness about human rights and their relevance in everyday life and provide a space for debate and discussion. For information about the Tour please visit: https://www.bihr.org.uk/human-rights-tour-2017
BIHR have over 40 years of experience in bringing human rights to life in the UK, but this will be their very first time in the Channel Islands.
JCRAG are excited to host this event and hope that it will be of particular interest to people who work in the public or charity sector, but any interested people are welcome to attend.
BIHR will provide a basic introduction to the law that protects our human rights in Jersey. They will explore how human rights protections are not simply about courts, but relevant and real to us all in everyday life. Importantly, there will be an opportunity to engage in some of the important debates going on about the future of our human rights law.
Using a combination of presentations, interactive sessions, discussions (and creative activities) these full day events provide a much-needed space to look together at the law, everyday practice and the portrayals of human rights.
