Human Rights after Brexit podcast is a series of nine podcasts in which young human rights experts discuss the implications of Brexit for human rights protection in the UK. Employment, equality, data protection, are all in danger of being undermined. In these podcasts, experts seek to identify questions that are likely to come up in the next two years before we leave the EU and provide tentative answers. The podcasts were recorded at the workshop led by Dr Veronika Fikfak and held at the University of Cambridge, Lauterpacht Centre at the end of March 2017. The workshop was sponsored by the British Academy.
