The Scottish Government has published the consultation for the Human Rights Bill. This is one of the biggest steps forward in human rights in Scotland, because the Bill will embed major international human rights treaties and the right to a healthy environment into Scots law.
This could make it so much easier for people to name and claim all their rights, and drive a shift towards human rights-based decision making – if it is done right.
The Human Rights Consortium want as many civil society organisations as possible to make their voices heard in the consultation process.
This session has been organised in partnership with Nourish Scotland and will have a particular focus around the right to food and associated issues.
