A new Advisory Group on Human Rights Leadership has met for the first time.

The group, chaired by Professor Alan Miller, has been established following a commitment in this year’s Programme for Government. It will operate independently from government, and develop recommendations on how Scotland can continue to promote and support human rights.

The Group will be supported by a wider reference group.  The  make-up of the Group, which is mainly academics, is:


Dr Katie Boyle

Professor Nicole Busby

Professor Paul Hunt

Dr Tobias Lock

Shelagh McCall QC

Professor Alan Miller (Chair)

Professor Elisa Morgera

Professor Aoife Nolan

Judith Robertson
