Socioeconomic Rights in an Independent Scotland (2014)

Overview

This paper will outline and contextualise the legal frameworks, 
international, regional and domestic, which are most relevant 
to the protection and promotion of human rights in Scotland. 
The report will then make a case for why human rights have 
the chance to be better advanced in an independent Scotland 
by taking the specific example of the progressive realisation of 
socioeconomic rights.
 
This report will advocate human rights as part of the ‘Common 
Weal’: the values which underpin this approach are broadly 
socialist, democratic and universalist. This report recognises 
top down legal reform as one strategy, which can be driven 
by both government and the grassroots, as a possible source 
of empowerment for people towards a fairer and more equal 
society.
