Would you like to give your views on a new human rights law for Scotland? Do you have thoughts on which rights should be included, and how they should be implemented?
A National Taskforce 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. It will include things like the right to housing, to food and to health. It will include rights for particular groups such as women. Public participation is an important part of this process, and the Human Rights Consortium Scotland is working with other organisations to facilitate conversations about human rights with rights-holders across the country.
If you would like to share your views with the Taskforce, and help to shape the law, please join the Consortium for one of the 3 interactive sessions above. Everyone is welcome to join in the discussion. We will collate the opinions shared at the event, and present them to the Taskforce to inform their final recommendations.

Following our discussion on the 10th December (5-6pm), we will run a separate, less formal event, entitled ‘Human Rights- looking backwards, looking forwards’ from 6-7:30pm. This event will provide a fun opportunity to reflect on human rights in the past, and share our hopes for the future.
Find out more about that event here.
