Response to Consultation on Children’s Rights

Year: 2019
Topic: Legislation
Author: Lizzie Morton and Louise Hill

CELCIS has rsponded to the Scottish Government's Consultation on Children's Rights: incorporating the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into our domestic law in Scotland.

CELCIS fully supports the intention to incorporate the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into Scots law, in a way which embeds children's rights at the heart of our society. Through incorporation, children's rights will be embedded more deeply into policy, law and practice; children will be able to seek redress for rights violations; and the advancement of children's rights in the Scottish courts will be enabled.

In addition to legislative change, we highlight the range of implementation measures which are necessary to ensure the impact of incorporation matches our aspirations for Scotland's children.
