A few bits and bobs in lieu of a real post!
Report on transparency in the Court of Protection
One of the themes in our research on welfare cases in the Court of Protection is ‘transparency’. Last September we held a roundtable, bringing together people with a wide range of perspectives of transparency, to discuss the issues and the legal framework. We’ve produced a report which provides a comprehensive (I hope!) overview of the legal framework, and some shortcomings therein, and the discussions of the roundtable. We make a number of recommendations for further areas of research and issues that may need addressing in future reforms. You can download the report here.
RightsInfo is Go!
Adam Wagner, of the UK Human Rights Blog, has set up a new website – the Human Rights Information Project. It’s aim is to bring ‘human rights to life using beautiful infographics, stories and social media’ and tackle the ‘image problem’ of human rights in the media. It’s absolutely stunning – well done Adam!
