Recent Developments

The profile of human rights in decision making on strategy, policy, services and funding is now more visible in Scotland. The challenge remains to capture high level political commitments and apply them in local areas across everyday issues. The potential of human rights to deliver a fairer Scotland is being realised by more people and more organisations but increased action is needed – from volunteers and front line staff to those who govern and manage the public, third and private sectors. We all have a role in making human rights real and if you want to influence developments and roll out good practice, a good idea is to draw on reports with recommendations and be inspired by resources including:

Reports from the Equalities and Human Rights Committee of the Scottish Parliament

Report from the First Minister’s Advisory Group on Human Rights Leadership

In respect of making decisions on budgets there is very useful learning from resources produced by the Scottish Human Rights Commission
