Using human rights to strengthen your campaigning on cost-of-living crisis

January 26, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


The cost-of-living crisis is a human rights crisis and requires a human rights-based response. Join us for a training session to learn how you can frame the cost-of-living crisis as a human rights issue in your advocacy and campaigning.


The cost-of-living crisis means that many people are unable to afford essentials; they are going hungry, and their homes are freezing. Further cuts to social security, healthcare, and education are likely. This means it is likely that people’s economic, social, and cultural rights are not being respected, protected, or fulfilled.


These rights are protected in international law, and you can hold local and national authorities to account where they fail to protect these rights.


The training will cover:

• What are the UK’s economic, social and cultural rights obligations?

• How is the cost-of-living crisis a human rights issue?

• How you can use human rights to strengthen your advocacy and campaigning on this issue


This training is aimed at groups and individuals across the UK working on human rights and/or social justice issues. No prior knowledge is required.


We like to use Zoom as it has some great accessibility features. So that we can make the training as accessible as possible, please let us know as soon as possible (and at least 72 hours before the event) if you have any communication or access needs.


Please email lyle.barker@justfair.org.uk to discuss.
