Exiting the EU
In June 2016, the UK voted in a referendum to leave the European Union (EU).
The Commission has called for human rights and social protections to be recognised as one of Scotland’s interests to be protected going forward. A commitment to advancing, not weakening, human rights protections must now be carried forward by both the UK and Scottish Governments in whatever changes are to follow.
