Human Rights

Defending human rights and civil liberties across the EU and further afield is a key priority for Keith. He is committed to addressing human rights abuses worldwide, promoting equality and ending discrimination. He has also challenged the UK government on potential abuses of civil liberties, including the right to protest and the right to free speech. As a member of the Parliamentary delegation to Afghanistan, Keith will have a particular influence over EU policy on human rights with respect to this country.
