Effectively Advancing Equality and Human Rights

Advancing Equality & Human Rights 28 October 2015Wednesday 28th October 7.30pm
The Green House Hotel,  4 Grove Road, Bournemouth BH1 3AX

With Pavan Dhaliwal of the British Humanist Association

Humanists have always been at the forefront of promoting a rational, secular approach to ethical issues in public policy, and the British Humanist AssociationBritish Humanist Association (BHA) devotes much of its resources towards campaigning for equality and human rights. Pavan Dhaliwal will outline the BHA’s current campaigns on issues such as assisted dying, religious education, and pastoral care in hospitals, and explain how we can most effectively use our limited resources for maximum effect. One such method currently being explored is the use of ‘strategic litigation’ which can bring about significant changes in the law, legal practice and/or public awareness by taking carefully-selected test cases to court.

Pavan Dhaliwal is Director of Public Affairs and Campaigns at the British Humanist Association and is responsible for campaigns covering a wide range of issues including public services, equality law, ethical issues, religion and schools, and social cohesion. She has worked in high level advisory and Head of Policy and Public Affairs roles for the past seven years. She is an equalities and human rights expert with a special interest in youth, criminal justice and education policy
