As in all areas, equality issues cross cut all areas of work and frequently merit additional scrutiny and monitoring in order to understand how differences in treatment can be created or exacerbated.
The Panel is in the process of drawing up a statement on how equality concerns may apply to deaths in custody. Once developed, it will be published on the website and the Panel will be inviting feedback. We will be interested in hearing from anyone with views on this subject which might help us begin to explore the subject.
