SHRC report: ‘Getting it Right? Human Rights in Scotland’

In order to provide an evidence base to develop Scotland’s National Action Plan for Human Rights, the Scottish Human Rights Commission (SHRC) compiled a research report called ‘Getting it Right? Human Rights in Scotland’.

The report was published in February 2013 and shows what appear to be some of the gaps and good practices for human rights in Scotland’s legal, political, economic, social, technological and environmental contexts and across eight broad areas of life:

  1. Dignity and care
  2. Health
  3. Where we live
  4. Education and work
  5. Private and family life
  6. Safety and security
  7. Living in detention
  8. Access to justice and the right to an effective remedy
