Human Rights

09/03/2016 8:58 am

The Catholic Church is committed to protecting freedom of religion or belief for everyone and we believe that this should be a foreign affairs priority for the UK.

We are currently working closely with the local Church in Iraq to support the rights of Christian and Yazidi communities who have been driven from their homes and with the local Church in Myanmar to support the rights of religious minorities in the country.

Our other advocacy priorities in this area include encouraging the UK to promote human rights through its trade policy and promoting global abolition of the death penalty.
