Brexit: Equality Commission recommendations as UK exits EU

Brexit: Equality Commission recommendations as UK exits EU
Protecting and advancing equality and good relations

Equality and Good Relations are priority issues which must be protected and advanced as the UK exits from the European Union.  

We recommend that government should:
  • ensure the promotion of equality and good relations are priority issues in EU exit negotiations
  • ensure no regression from existing equality protections and mechanisms
  • adopt a best practice approach that includes implementing future relevant equality enhancing protections and best practice
  • ensure there is no negative impact on equality and good relations for those living in Northern Ireland
  • ensure effective engagement with key stakeholders, including Section 75 groups
