1. The purpose of the Task Force is to:
(i) help Departments and other public authorities
prepare for implementation of the Human Rights Act 1998; and
(ii) increase general awareness, especially
among young people, of the rights and responsibilities flowing
from the incorporation of European Convention on Human Rights
and thus to help build a human rights culture in the United Kingdom.

between Government and non-governmental organisations on the readiness
of public authorities for implementation. It will help identify,
promote and support, as appropriate, a range of intitiatives and

and publicity material.
