GCU contributes to Scotland

The human rights workshop at GCU

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is contributing to Scotland’s National Action Plan for Human Rights in partnership with the Scottish Human Rights Commission (SHRC). 

Over the past three years, the Scottish Human Rights Commission has researched the realisation of human rights in Scotland in comparison with international standards. The SHRC argues Scotland needs a more systematic approach to assure the realisation of human rights in practice.

To support this aim, the academic team for GCU’s MSc in Citizenship and Human Rights led three parallel workshops to generate a contribution to Scotland’s National Action Plan for Human Rights.

Opened and concluded by Professor Alan Miller, Chair of the SHRC, attending delegates included organisations ranging the Care Inspectorate, the Scottish Prison Service, Police Scotland, Third Sector Hebrides, Scottish Commission for Children and Young People, Mental Welfare Commission, CAS and the NHS.
