A National Taskforce for Human Rights Leadership is putting together recommendations to the Scottish Government for a new human rights law.
This law would build on existing human rights laws to strengthen how all our rights are protected.
The Human Rights Consortium Scotland and the Scottish Human Rights Commission are both members of the National Taskforce. We would like to hear from people and communities across Scotland about how this new human rights law should work. We also want to know what people might need in order to use the new law to claim their rights. To this end, we have teamed up to launch All Our Rights in Law. All Our Rights in Law is a programme of public participation events, which will feed into the Taskforce’s work and help people from all across Scotland- from every walk of life- to shape the new law.
Using the information from the events, we will gather views to help inform the National Taskforce’s final recommendations. We will also publish a report to help inform how detailed proposals for a new law are developed.
The Consortium will be hosting 3 discussion events, on the 13th and 30th of November and 10th December respectively. We invite anyone to join in and share their views and experiences.
