This brief will primarily be used by Just Fair and other NGOs across the UK to inform their approach to the seventh periodic review of the UK by the CESCR. The first part analyses the concerns repeatedly raised in the UK’s six Concluding Observations from 1980 to 2016 on its implementation of ICESCR’s substantive rights. Secondly, based on a systematic keyword search of three different databases – Ebsco Discovery, UK Westlaw and International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS) – potentially relevant concerns since 2016 are identified and analysed for each of the substantive rights with a view to the UK’s seventh periodic review. In each of these sections, particular attention is given to funding, Brexit, the COVID-19 pandemic, and nondiscrimination, when relevant.

Data is necessary for the realization of human rights. Without it we cannot understand the prevailing human rights situation, we cannot make informed policy decisions, and we cannot assess the effectiveness of those policy decisions.

The collective position articulates a series of principles and recommendations states should follow when collecting, analyzing and using data for public decision-making, in line with human rights obligations. It also provides a comprehensive overview of key data-related issues (e.g. representativeness, quality, privacy, transparency…) that are instrumental in advancing ESCR, and that as human rights advocates, we should be aware of. In particular, this final version contains stronger analysis on issues of equality and non-discrimination and privacy in light of the impacts of digitalization and data commercialization on ESCR.  

This collective position is the outcome of a two-year long process that involved over 25 organizations, social movements, and individual members of the Network who have co-drafted and provided inputs on the document.

Los datos son necesarios para la realización de los derechos humanos. Sin ellos no podemos entender la situación prevalente de los derechos humanos, no podemos tomar decisiones informadas sobre políticas y no podemos evaluar la efectividad de esas decisiones sobre políticas.

La posición plantea una serie de principios y recomendaciones que los Estados deberían seguir a la hora de recopilar, analizar y utilizar los datos para la toma de decisiones públicas. También proporciona una visión general de las cuestiones clave relacionadas con los datos (por ejemplo, la representatividad, la calidad, la privacidad, la transparencia...) que son fundamentales para el avance de los derechos económicos, sociales y culturales, y que es importante que los defensores de los derechos humanos conozcan. Esta versión final contiene un análisis más sólido sobre cuestiones de igualdad y no discriminación y de privacidad, especialmente a la luz de los impactos de la digitalización y la comercialización de datos sobre los DESC. 

Esta posición colectiva es el resultado de un proceso que llevó dos años e involucró a más de 25 organizaciones, movimientos sociales y miembros individuales de la Red que trabajaron en la redacción e hicieron aportes al documento, como se indicó anteriormente.

This paper, aimed at education policymakers, provides analysis and insights on how the right to education for refugees could be ensured from a policy perspective. It does so by reviewing the current status of access to education of refugees, using the scant data that is available in this area. It also outlines some of the extensive barriers to education that refugees face, with recognition of the multifaceted, interlinked and complex nature of exclusion. It provides an overview of the international normative frameworks and global agendas on education that can be applied to refugees to ensure their right to education and achieve SDG 4. Additionally, this document presents practical examples, good practices, and promising measures taken by countries in order to ensure the inclusion of refugees in their national systems and better guarantee the fulfilment of their right to education. As a result of this research, collaboration and the invaluable contributions from the participants in a dedicated Expert Meeting in Barcelona (2018), a set of policy recommendations are provided in the last chapter which aims to guide policymakers to ensure equal access to good quality education for refugees.
