Developing and Using Human Rights Indicators for York
How can we measure York’s journey to becoming a Human Rights City? We’ve worked with City of York Council, York CVS, North Yorkshire Police and the voluntary sector to develop indicators in five different areas:
- Non-discrimination and Equality
- Health and Social Care
- Standards of Living
These areas were decided through a participatory process with residents and community groups.
We developed our first report with indicators to measure York’s progress towards dealing with these key human rights issues in December 2016.
On 7th December 2017, we released our second report reporting on progress and challenges.
We held a public meeting to discuss findings of the 2018 report on 10th December 2018; this special edition includes extra information on the right to housing.
We held a public meeting to discuss findings of the 2019 report on 10th December 2019; this special edition includes extra information on the right to a decent standard of living.
