BLAM and ERT launch the Olive Morris Fellowship to support a legal researcher to investigate the link between the gaps in the National Curriculum and patterns of racial prejudice and discriminatin in the UK. The Fellowship is part of our new initiative working in partnership to implement the UK's equality law obligations to adopt measures in its educational system to combat prejudices which lead to racial discrimination.
The Equal Rights Trust has recently launched a new initiative to support groups and organisations in Commonwealth of Nations member countries working to advocate for the adoption of comprehensive equality laws. As part of this initiative, we are inviting bids from organisations interested in receiving financial, technical and strategic support for the development of advocacy strategies to secure the adoption of comprehensive equality laws in their country. We are grateful to the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office for providing the funding to support this project.

The Equal Rights Trust is pleased to launch the Bob Hepple Equality Law Fellowship to support individuals interested in increasing their knowledge and experience in the field of equality law. The Fellowship is launched in memory of the late Professor Sir Bob Hepple QC, c

Last month, the Equal Rights Trust submitted evidence to three different consultations by UN special rapporteurs, each of which examined a different dimension of the role of equality law in the realisation of rights and development. The evidence provided – collected through our work supporting equality defenders around the world – serves to underline the essential role of equality laws in ensuring that everyone can participate in society on an equal basis.
