This year, the Harry Weinrebe Memorial Lecture will celebrate Human Rights Day by highlighting the key cross-cutting human right: the right to be free from discrimination. The debate will focus on the issue of inclusivity within the legal sphere to assess whether the current grounds prohibiting discrimination under human rights law are sufficient to ensure equal treatment before the law and, more widely, in our societies. In particular, experts will discuss whether the existing prohibition of discrimination based on social origin under human rights law should be strengthened and, if so, how?
