Who we are
The Scottish Human Rights Commission was established by an Act of the Scottish Parliament and started work in 2008. The Commission is independent of the Scottish and UK Governments, and the Scottish and Westminster Parliaments. The Commission has a vision of a modern, outward-looking and fairer Scotland, where human dignity, equality and participation are guaranteed for all. We are an accountable public body, and regularly report on our progress, finance and audit. The Commission is a national human rights institution, and we have an international role in promoting and protecting human rights.
