Exploring How International Human Rights Law Could Work in Scots Law through Incorporation: Questions, Updates & Discussion
If you are from a civil society organisation & have an interest in the future of human rights in Scotland, this event is for you!
It will provide an opportunity to get updated on where things are in the broader incorporation discussion, and to explore some key questions. These questions include:
- what does incorporation mean?
- why is incorporation of UN rights important?
- what does incorporation look like generally across different rights (best practice)?
- what could/should this look like in Scotland?
- what training or information does civil society need around incorporation of UN rights?
The event will include input from: Dr Kasey McCall-Smith, senior lecturer in public international law, University of Edinburgh; Juliet Harris Director of Together: Scottish Alliance for Children’s Rights; Naomi McAuliffe, Programme Director of Amnesty International in Scotland; Veronica Luhtanen and Sofie Quist, research assistants at University of Edinburgh.
The event will be 9.30am -12.15pm, followed by lunch. Registration and coffee from 9.00. Departure by 13.00.
Support for this event is provided by the University of Edinburgh’s ESRC Impact Acceleration Account.
