The Independent Human Rights Act Review (IHRAR) was launched in December 2020 to examine the framework of the Human Rights Act 1998 (HRA), how it is operating in practice and whether any change is required. The Review is being conducted by a Panel of eight members, chaired by Sir Peter Gross, a former judge of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales. Following the close of IHRAR’s call for evidence, members of the IHRAR Panel are participating in a series of public events hosted by universities across the United Kingdom. They aim to engage and hear views from a wide range of interested parties to help inform their deliberations.
This event hosted by the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford will be of interest to experts in the field, as well as those with an interest in human rights and their application in the UK and its legal jurisdictions.

If you wish to submit a question for the panel in advance, please do so via: https://forms.office.com/r/qi4v7s04iR
A selection of those questions will be put to the IHRAR Panel and to the academics from Oxford and Cambridge who will be participating in the event. There will also be an opportunity to submit questions via the Q&A chat function during the event itself, but it would be very helpful if questions, as far as possible, could be submitted in advance.
