The National Taskforce for Human Rights Leadership

  • The National Taskforce is made up of members of the public sector and civil society. Its role is to establish a statutory framework for the incorporation of many international human rights treaties into domestic law. It will make recommendations for this new law to the Scottish Government in March 2021.

All Our Rights in Law

  • All Our Rights in Law is a public participation programme, set up by the Human Rights Consortium Scotland and the Scottish Human Rights Commission in November 2020.
  • Its goal is to facilitate discussions around a new human rights law for Scotland, and report to the National Taskforce (see above) on what ordinary people think about human rights incorporation.
  • So far, a wide variety of civil society organisations have engaged with All Our Rights in Law, and held discussions with rights-holders.
