The Scottish Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has responded to the Scottish Parliament’s Commission on Parliamentary Reform

In their response, the SHRC recommend that the Scottish Parliament should:
• Further embed a rights based approach in structures and processes to strengthen its effectiveness to deliver the best outcomes for the lives of people in Scotland.
• Work with international partners to ensure that Scotland learns from developing good practice.
• Build MSP and staff capacity in relation to human rights to ensure that the Parliament is able to act as a human rights guarantor.
• Work together with the Commission in accordance with the Belgrade Principles to ensure the promotion and protection of human rights.
