In spite of equality and socio-economic rights existing in legislation, discrimination and inequality has been on the rise and it has become ever more difficult to access justice.
Unison's success in challenging employment tribunal fees, the successful ‘Justice for Workers Campaign’ run by workers and students of SOAS, and collective action of social housing residents across London challenging discrimination and inequality in housing, has demonstrated the importance of collective action in ensuring access to justice and enforcing socio economic rights for those who are marginalised on the grounds of race and class.
At this conference we will hear from legal experts on the domestic and international legislative framework protecting socio-economic rights. Speakers will also include those who have successfully used collective action as a means of ensuring access to justice and enforcing socio-economic rights . This will be an interactive conference bringing together academics, lawyers, campaigners and the voluntary and community sector to explore multi-disciplinary approaches to tackling inequality at the intersections of race and class.
