Incorporating Human Rights In Scotland

Project Details

Description

The First Minister of Scotland recently committed to incorporating international children’s rights into domestic law, and her Advisory Group on Human Rights Leadership has further recommended that Scotland should incorporate all human rights treaties. Recent research shows that incorporation is complex and that civil society groups are often confused by how incorporation can be done and what it can achieve in practice.
Working with key partners (Human Rights Consortium Scotland, Amnesty International and Together), this project brings academic research together with civil society expertise to develop a framework for best practice on incorporation, ensuring that civil society organisations have the information and training they need in order to influence key decision-makers at this opportune time.
