The complex area of human rights law is discussed by one of the most experienced UK barristers and activists working for the defence of Christian freedoms and conscience. Andrea explains how the justice system might be used to progress the Christian agenda with respect to human rights. She looks particularly at the role of self-censoring and the danger of remaining silent.
Proposed Learning Objectives
- Explain how human rights laws might be used to slow down, challenge or defend people against ‘conversion therapy’ bans.
- Discern and articulate the weaknesses and strengths of human rights frameworks. It’s not guaranteed that ECHR or similar will protect you in practice.
- From the session, which tools might be used, while staying focused on God-given freedoms, to the benefit of those fighting for justice?
- Explain why it is better to force the justice system to appeal to persecution than to self-censor.
