Each year, 10th December marks International Human Rights Day - a day of action to celebrate and raise awareness of international human rights. This year, it will also be the first anniversary of Scotland's National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP).

Events and activities are taking place all around Scotland from 1st to 11th December 2014 to raise awareness of human rights in everyday life, discuss progress made through SNAP and identify opportunities for more action to improve human rights in Scotland in 2015 and beyond.
