Hirst test and the MoJ on human rights

Hirst test and the MoJ on human rights

Human rights

The Human Rights Act ensures that your human rights are respected by public authorities, and makes it unlawful for them to act against your rights.

If you believe that your rights have been interfered with unreasonably, it gives you a way of doing something about it.

We are responsible for developing human rights policy. We can explain what the Act should do and how public authorities should behave under the Act. However, we can't investigate alleged human rights violations and we can't give legal advice. Everyone in the UK is protected by the Act.
