Scotland's National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP)

Scotland’s National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP) was launched on International Human Rights Day, 10 December 2013. It sets out a bold roadmap towards a Scotland where everyone can live with human dignity.

SNAP is the first National Action Plan for human rights in any part of the UK and draws from experiences of countries all over the world as well as guidance from the United Nations and the Council of Europe.

Based on evidence and broad participation, SNAP was developed by a Drafting Group from across the public and voluntary sectors. An Advisory Council, whose members reflect the diversity of Scottish civic life, oversaw the process.

Download the Action Plan 2013-2017 and reports on progress in Year One, Year Two and Year Three. You can also watch the highlights from a reception held to mark SNAP's third anniversary in December 2016 (video below).

A National Participation Event will take place on 12 December 2017 to reflect on SNAP's successes and challenges, guide what comes next, and inform the final evaluation and report on SNAP’s first four years.
