About Us

EQUITY Research Centre is an independent, not-for-profit organisation which is focused on one of the UK’s greatest social and political challenges of our time – the decline of civil liberty and the destructive consequences it has on civil society. We will provide a platform which brings relevant non-partisan parties together in order to shape, expand the scope of the debate, educate the public and present new ideas to the powers that be to ensure changes are made to protect all UK citizens.

 

Our aim is to highlight the situation we find ourselves in. We are particularly concerned with the deliberate policies adopted by governments – both Labour and Conservative to further their own agendas, which risks undermining a cohesive, civic society through the dismantling of our rights as citizens of Britain.

This situation destabilizes our democracy and creates a vacuum where divisive elements rise leading to more extreme politics and policies, which then become the norm. A significant section of our society now feels threatened in all areas of their lives. One clear example of this is the continual attempts by the governments’ flagship surveillance law, the Investigatory Powers Act, proven in the high courts of both Britain and the European Union to be unlawful.

We will inform those in positions of power and the public via in-depth investigative research, studies and events and through fact-based, unbiased reporting and collaborations with organisations on the legal front line to protect our rights. Our aim to expose systemic wrongs and spark change.
