I’m very excited to tell you about RightsInfo’s new project, #YourHumanRights. We have produced 16 beautiful infographics each representing a key right in the European Convention. They don’t just show the text, but also explain in plain-English where the rights come come from, what they mean and why they matter
Wait! There’s more…
Everyone is welcome to download and print these infographics for free by clicking the “download” link.
But if you or your organisation want a professional-quality print, for the first time on RightsInfo, you can order prints from our partner Magnolia Box. Each article is available as an individual poster for either £9 or £12 depending on size – buying the set saves you at least £40. We even have framed versions, and postcards, perfect timing with the holiday season just around the corner!
RightsInfo is part of Global Dialogue, a charity, so we are not out to make a profit. But we have been asked so many times for professional quality printing options, we decided to open this up for these infographics.
Please share these infographics to get the word out about why human rights matter.
We’re about to have a fifth birthday party for the UK Human Rights Blog (a bit late – we turned five at the end of March…) so it seems like as good as time as any to reflect on what we have achieved.
First, some numbers.
- Five years and seven months
- 2,245 posts
- 4.7 million hits
- 6,258 comments
- 13,273 subscribers (just email – loads more on Facebook and Twitter)
Not bad, eh? I started this blog towards the end of my pupillage (year of training) at 1 Crown Office Row in 2009. Thanks to the incredibly hard work and dedication of our dedicated band of authors and editors, the UKHRB has become a key source of human rights information in the UK and also across the world. Particular thanks to Angus McCullough QC, Rosalind English, David Hart QC and Martin Downs who have been total champions.
After five years on the job, you will probably noticed that I have drawn back my involvement to concentrate on my new project, RightsInfo, which fills in some gaps which the blog couldn’t have, without changing its basic nature. Into the breach has stepped another 1COR hero, Jim Duffy, who has brought a fresh approach and a lot of fantastic new authors. We are very grateful to him.
Anyway, keep reading and thanks for all of your support, comments and bizarre emails. See you at our 10 year party.
RightsInfo made a lovely new animation. Please like, share and spread the word.
The UK Human Rights Blog recently turned five years old, and it would only be right if we celebrated with you, our loyal readers. So, we’re having a party on Thursday 29 October 2015. The full details are below. There will be drinks and some great music.
It’s a free event, but places are very limited so if you want to reserve a place, please email Lisa Pavlovsky (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject heading “UKHRB Birthday Party”. The body text should only include your name, position (e.g. “solicitor” or “student”) and organisation, if you are attached to one.

Have you seen 11KBW’s Sean Jones’ brilliant (and extremely successful) “Billable Hour” appeal?
He has already exceeded his target by about a million percent but the target was pretty modest so please consider donating. The idea is that you donate the equivalent of what you charge for one hour of your time.
You can donate find his Just Giving page by clicking here. All money goes to Save The Children.
I am are delighted to announce the launch of RightsInfo’s new infographic project:
If you care about spreading accurate information on human rights, then please share the infographic and individual cards as widely as possible.
