In 2010, the Commission produced its first report on equality (How Fair is Britain?) and separate report on human rights (the Human Rights Review) in 2012. Is Britain Fairer? is the Commission’s follow-up report on both equality and human rights. This report outlines our findings and sets out the challenges for the future.
The landmark report, which is made up 1,840 pages of evidence, 75 data spreadsheets and thousands of sources, is the most comprehensive assessment of equality and human rights that has been carried out in GB.
