The Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI) launched its latest human rights data for the United Kingdom on its Rights Tracker on 22nd June.

The HRMI checks how well each country’s government is doing in terms of respecting rights compared to how much it is capable of with it’s level of income.

Despite the UK being considered a high income country, the government is performing average in terms of providing quality of life for its population, with the right to housing falling towards one of the least respected rights by the Government.

Groups with their rights most at risk seem to be majorly refugees or asylum seekers, people with disabilities and people with low social or economic status.
