A Human Rights Bill for Scotland

Thursday 5 October 2023 @ 11:59 pm

Scotland is a modern, inclusive nation which respects, protects, and fulfils all internationally recognised human rights and has committed to go further through a new Human Rights Bill that will incorporate international human rights standards.

Embedding international human rights in Scotland will further emphasise the importance of all people being treated with dignity, and ensure that human rights play an even more central role in our strategies, policies and decision-making processes across all areas of government and the wider public sector.

This consultation on the proposals for a Human Rights Bill to be introduced within this session of the Scottish Parliament seeks the views of everyone on that vision.

Deadline for submissions is Thursday 5 October 2023.
