Looking ahead, organisations can explain to staff, volunteers and stakeholders, how human rights fit with their work internally and externally in a Blog published for International Human Rights Day which takes place on 10th December each year. Be ambitious on what you can do for rights holders as well as duty bearers over the coming year to build a human rights culture in Scotland.

Here are some Blogs we have written to make the connection between human rights delivery and everyday issues including:

Poverty and Human Rights Extreme Poverty and Human Rights – What next in Scotland? and Defending Rights and Promoting Remedies and Counting the Change – Why Human Rights Matter

Housing and Human Rights Capitalising on the Human Right to Housing

FoI and Human Rights A price can’t be put on our FoI rights and Third Sector having its say on FoI rights

Start off the process by asking colleagues what they need to know to make human rights real for them, the people they work with and the people they serve. Rights need to be practical and easily delivered if they are to make Scotland fairer.
