Human Rights, Public Inquiries and The Public Interest

Accountability from Hillsborough to Grenfell

From disasters involving the substantial loss of life, to major investigations into failures in public duty; from healthcare to policing, the procedural and investigative obligations placed on the State by the Human Rights Act 1998 create an important framework for accountability.

The Human Rights Lawyers’ Association invites you to join our expert panel of speakers to explore the particular challenges faced by practitioners participating in public inquiries and how an effective investigation might both be rights compliant and capable of exposing the truth.
