Consultation on incorporating the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
The Scottish Government is seeking views on how best to incorporate the UN’s ‘gold standard’ for children’s rights into Scots Law and improve the lives of children and young people. The Scottish Government state that:
“Incorporating the UNCRC will strengthen existing work to protect and respect children, and the consultation seeks views on the best way to do this within the context of Scots law, and the powers of the Scottish Parliament”
The consultation runs until the 14th August 2019, click here to access.
