Programme for Government 2020/21

Protecting Scotland, Renewing Scotland: The Government’s Programme for Scotland 2020-2021’ (PfG) was launched on 1st September 2020 and made a number of positive commitments on human rights as well as confirming that the UNCRC would be incorporated into Scot’s law. The challenge will be to ensure that the law on human rights, the Human Rights Act 1998 as well as the Scotland Act 1998, will be mainstreamed across Government business as well as the separate duties under the Equalities Act 2020. Organisations have a great opportunity to influence the delivery strategy of government as well as build up understanding with supporters and stakeholders so that human rights realise their potential to make Scotland fairer.
