The Scottish Government is developing a new law that will bring a number of internationally recognised human rights treaties and standards directly into Scots law. This new law will include the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
But what actually is the human right to cultural life? What relevance does it have for people in Scotland? What might it look like in practice? What impact might this right have, and what challenges and opportunities might it bring for the cultural sector and beyond?
This 2 and a half hour event is an opportunity to begin to explore these questions. Listen in to experts in this field, and bring your experience and insight to the discussion.
We are delighted to be joined by Alexandra Xanthaki, the UN Special Rapporteur in the field of cultural rights.
We want our events to be accessible to everyone. Please email Rebecca@hrcscotland.org as soon as possible if you have any accessibility requirements.
