Fundamental Rights and Equality

About us

The Fundamental Rights and Equality Group (FREG) comprises academics, doctoral researchers and honorary fellows working within the fields of human rights, equality, migration and law, and religion.

The group provides a leading research forum in areas related to fundamental rights, equality and migration. Hosting conferences, events and lectures, the group brings together academics, practitioners and policy makers to debate emerging research challenges.

Our conception of human rights is broad - our guest speakers' topics have ranged from international environmental law to transitional justice - but what underpins the ethos of the group is consideration of the interplay between human rights and equality at domestic, European and international levels.
