The Scottish Government has published the consultation for the Human Rights Incorporation Bill. This is one of the biggest steps forward in human rights in Scotland, because the Bill will embed major international human rights treaties and the right to a healthy environment into Scots law.
This could make it so much easier for people to name and claim all their rights, and drive a shift towards human rights-based decision making – if it is done right.
We want as many civil society organisations as possible to make their voices heard in the consultation process. Come along to this session to present your questions to the Scottish Government Human Rights Bill Team, who will be on hand to answer them. You can submit questions in advance, and there will also be an opportunity to ask questions directly from the floor.
This session has been organised in partnership with the Scottish Government Human Rights Bill Team.
This session is part of the ‘It’s All Rights’ series. Every session in the series covers the same core content. Then, some of the sessions also have a specific focus. You can find details of the other sessions in the series here: https://hrcscotland.org/the-scottish-human-rights-bill-consultation-is-out-now/
We want these events to be as accessible as possible. Please email Rebecca@hrcscotland.org as soon as possible if you have any accessibility requirements.
