Views wanted on business and human rights

The Scottish Human Rights Commission, the Scottish Government and other partners in Scotland's National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP) are looking for views on business and human rights in Scotland.


Both the European Union and the United Nations have called for the development of National Action Plans (NAPs) to support the implementation of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Since 2011 a number of governments have developed NAPs.


As a first step in the process of developing a Scottish plan, a National Baseline Assessment on Business and Human Rights has been commissioned and published through SNAP.


SNAP partners would like to hear views on the issues raised from the business community, trade unions, civil society organisations and public bodies. Our online survey is now closed, but we will be running a number of workshops with civil society, trade unions, business and public officials ‎to hear further from interested parties; further information will be available near the time of these events.
