Inquiry: the human rights implications of Brexit

The Joint Committee on Human Rights is launching an inquiry into the human rights implications of Brexit.

Three issues are of particular interest to the Committee:

  • Privacy and family life
  • International trade 
  • Other human rights protected by EU law

The Committee is issuing an open call for evidence, asking interested parties and stakeholders to submit evidence on any impact of the UK’s proposed withdrawal from the EU on the human rights framework and protection of human rights in the UK. This is to ensure that the Committee does not exclude any relevant but hitherto undisclosed issues.

The deadline for written submissions is 10 October 2016.
