SNAP – Year Three report and case studies

Date: 6th March 2017
Category: Scotland-specific monitoring and reporting

The SNAP Year Three report summarises activities during 2016 and sets out future ambitions and plans to enable SNAP to evolve in response to the human rights issues of the day.

SNAP is Scotland's National Action Plan for Human Rights. It is a programme for collective action across Scotland to make all human rights a reality for everyone. SNAP was launched in December 2013 as an initial four-year plan. Annual Reports have been produced each year on progress made towards outcomes. This Year Three report summarises activities during 2016 and looks ahead to 2017 and beyond.

The report also profiles examples of SNAP actions that link very explicitly to international human rights standards - the right to health, the right to housing and the right to an adequate standard of living. These case studies help develop a fuller understanding of human rights in practice, and the contribution that people and organisations involved in SNAP are making to help realise them.
