Discrimination

Article 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) states that you cannot be discriminated against when exercising your human rights. It is not a free-standing protection against discrimination. For there to be a breach of Article 14, the discrimination must be related to one of the other Convention rights.

Northern Ireland also has a comprehensive framework of equality and anti-discrimination law to protect you from discrimination.
