Successful Use of Strategic Litigation by the Voluntary Sector on Issues Related to Discrimination and Disadvantage: Key Cases from the UK

Picture working paper 3

The third working paper by Dr Lisa Vanhala brings together ten examples stretching over a decade and covering a wide variety of issues of discrimination and disadvantage. Although no panacea, and with its costs and risks, in the right circumstances strategic litigation can be a powerful tool for the voluntary sector in redressing social injustice. It is hoped the report will prompt voluntary organisations without legal specialism to ask if they should  be considering strategic litigation in the service of their charitable mission.
