Scotland’s first National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP) set out an ambitious roadmap towards a Scotland where everyone can live with human dignity. Scotland’s second National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP 2) seeks to further realise this aim.
In 2019, a consultation took place on draft proposals for SNAP 2. A report of the feedback received from the consultation can be read here. A longlist of 61 actions under SNAP 2 has also been issued.
Scottish Government has committed to supporting an appropriate SNAP 2 governance structure and that once this structure has been developed, full consideration would be given to appropriate resourcing.
The next steps involve refining the longlist of 61 actions in light of COVID-19 and finalising the measurement framework, with a view to launching SNAP 2 in early 2021.
