How fair is Britain? Equality, Human Rights and Good Relations in 2010: The first triennial Review
Every three years, under the terms of the Equality Act 2006, the Commission is required to report to Parliament on the progress that society is making towards equality in the UK. This Review sets out the context in which the Review takes place. It reflects on the growing diversity of the British public, and increasing acceptance of different lifestyles, and expectations of freedom and fairness. It summarises the development of equality law to date, and explains why a concern for equality is vitally important at a time of demographic change, economic change and tight public spending. The review focuses on nine different areas including employment, standard of living and care and support, and sets out some of the key challenges ahead in relation to this.
