Details

Government is committed to eliminating caste-based discrimination and harassment in the UK and plans to carry out a full public consultation on the prospective legislation in early 2014.

The consultation will draw on existing reports, as well as the findings of research on caste and caste discrimination which the Equality and Human Rights Commission will carry out shortly.

The Commission’s research is due to last between 3 to 6 months from summer 2013, and will include discussions with people and groups who are interested in caste discrimination.
