This chapter talks about the basis for developing an alternative capabilities and human rights approach, in the context of the creation of the new Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). It argues that social class justice must be a primary concern, along with other equalities. The chapter then develops a discussion of policy alternatives, while connecting them to emerging campaigns to fight various forms of discrimination and promoting equalities and human rights.
