To mark International Human Rights Day, the Scottish Government led a debate in the Scottish Parliament reaffirming Scotland’s support for human rights defenders. The Law Society provided a briefing to all MSPs in advance of that debate highlighting the important contribution that the international legal community makes to this work.
The Scottish Parliament's Equalities and Human Rights Committee has issued an inquiry which will consider human rights under three main themes: participation and engagement, Parliamentary procedure and process, and accountability.
