Free training workshop: International Human Rights in Scots Law, 27th February, Edinburgh

The Scottish Government’s Human Rights Task Force is currently working to develop new legislation that will incorporate more international human rights into Scots law.

This training is designed to enable all interested civil society organisations and human rights advocates to increase their knowledge and understanding of the what, why and how of incorporating human rights.

Through expert input, using a wide variety of interactive tools, and providing take-away resources, participants will get the information that they need in order to influence key decision-makers at this opportune time.

This accessible training workshop will:

  • demystify the legal terminology surrounding incorporation
  • demonstrate the value of different forms of incorporation across different rights sectors
  • provide useful insight into best practice and the impact that incorporation can have, using methods such as case studies and infographics
  • be designed so that participants can then cascade the training in their own organisations and networks.

In partnership with the Human Rights Consortium Scotland, Amnesty Scotland and Together, the training will be delivered by academics from the University of Edinburgh Law School.

The event will be 9.30am -1.30pm, followed by lunch. Registration and coffee from 9.15.

Support for this event is provided by the University of Edinburgh’s ESRC Impact Acceleration Account through the Incorporating Human Rights in Scotland project.
