Exploring practice at home and in other jurisdictions to draw learning for Scotland as it moves to incorporate the UNCRC.

In summer 2023, Together was joined by Isobel Mintz, a candidate on the LLM Human Rights programme at Edinburgh University. Isobel completed a work-based placement researching the extent to which children have been involved in processes that the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child uses to check up on how well children’s rights are being upheld in a particular country.

In this blog on #WorldChildrensDay, Isobel shares some of her key findings and reflections from the project as Scotland moves to incorporate the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into law.
