Abstract:

This paper considers whether the Human Rights Act 1998 is, in itself, capable of materially improving the lives of those who experience social exclusion – or whether it is likely to exacerbate their difficulties. It draws on the relevant post-2000 research concerning the Act's impact on socially excluded groups which suggests that the response of the statutory agencies has been disappointing – that ‘not being proactive’ has proved to be the most attractive option. It then addresses the incongruity between the government's strategies for combating social exclusion and civil justice.
