Authorities fail in meeting their human rights obligations

In this report we conclude that the evidence shows that authorities failed and continue to fail in meeting their human rights obligations.

Grenfell as a human rights issue

More than 70 people died in the Grenfell Tower fire on 14 June 2017, in homes managed by the State. 

The events surrounding the fire and the following treatment of survivors, their families and the community, raise serious equality and human rights questions.

Public authorities, such as the government and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, have responsibilities to treat everyone with fairness, dignity and respect. We are determined to make sure these duties are highlighted.

Why are we involved?
