Human rights are provisioned for at a European and global level through instruments such as the European Convention on Human Rights and the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These serve to support regional human rights law in the UK and are an effective protection for victims of human rights abuse. At P.A. Duffy and Company our solicitors advise our clients on the protection afforded to them under EU and international law and will endeavour to achieve the best remedy available.
European Economic Area Citizens
- Individuals who fall within the category of an EEA national have enhanced rights of residence and access to state assistance compared to other immigrants. However, the impact of recent legislative changes and the onset of Brexit has led to uncertainty as to what exactly EEA nationals are entitled to in the UK in relation to residency rights and access to benefits and other services. Our expert solicitors can advise on the complex legal framework surrounding this area of law.
- Our services include challenging the lawfulness of legislative changes that discriminate against our clients. For example, the Home Office’s denial of housing benefit to EEA nationals in the UK has significantly increased the risk of homelessness among these individuals, potentially engaging various rights under the European Convention on Human Rights.
- At P.A. Duffy and Company we are committed to protecting and promoting the fundamental human rights provided for by EU and International law.
