Strengthening Migrants’ Human Rights in Scotland: The Plans & Priorities, 28th October @ 9:30am

On Wednesday 28th October, the Consortium will host an interactive half-day event to discuss how migrants’ rights can be strengthened. A new human rights law is being developed in Scotland that will include many of our everyday human rights, like rights to housing, food and healthcare. But how can we ensure that the law protects and promotes the rights of migrants?

Organisations working with migrants are invited to bring their experience and expertise to this discussion around how the law could improve the lives of those new to Scotland.

The event will be chaired by Sarah Kyambi, Director of Migration Policy Scotland project, and will include contributions from JustRight Scotland, BEMIS and the Citizens’ Rights Project amongst others.

This event will:

  • provide up-to-date, accessible information about plans for new human rights law in Scotland and how organisations and migrants themselves can get involved in shaping it
  • be an opportunity for participants to bring their expertise and perspectives to the discussion to identify key priorities, concerns & messages to Government.
