In December 2018, the First Minister’s Advisory Group on Human Rights Leadership produced recommendations around how Scotland can continue to progress and not regress on rights if we leave the EU. Recommendations include a new law that incorporates international economic, social, cultural and environmental rights into Scots law. At the same time, a Bill is being developed to incorporate the UNCRC into Scots law. The Human Rights Consortium Scotland ‘Incorporation Station’ pulls together resources and information around these plans to facilitate civil society’s engagement in their development.
