Human Rights in an Independent Scotland

In the debate about the referendum on Scottish independence, one issue which is rarely talked about is that of human rights.  This includes questions about what human rights obligations an independent Scotland will - or should - have; whether support for, and implementation of, human rights is likely to be stronger or weaker; who would be a citizen of the new country and what kind of immigration controls would be in place between Scotland and the rest of Europe; and what specific constitutional arrangements may be necessary to ensure the proper place of human rights in an independent Scotland.

‎The Glasgow Human Rights Network initiated a series of events addressing these themes between now and the referendum in 2014.  While some of the events will be organised solely by GHRN, we are also looking for partners who would like to work with us on these issues.
