The British government predicted in 1998 that its Human Rights Act would lead to a Human Rights culture in the UK. Will it? What will that culture be like? What are the pros and cons? What are the implications for managers? This succinct, highly readable new guide will help any manager to: know the background to Human Rights; understand the legal, moral, political and organizational issues involved be aware of their own rights and responsibilities; be able to evaluate what their organization needs to do to operate effectively and in accordance with the law - at home and abroad
