Scotland’s National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP) was launched on International Human Rights Day, 10 December 2013. The programme fulfills key recommendations from the United Nations and the Council of Europe and sets out a bold roadmap towards a Scotland where everyone can live with human dignity.

The SNAP Leadership Panel, a partnership involving various stakeholders and co-chaired by the Scottish Human Rights Commission and the Scottish Government, is now recruiting new members to work together as equals to finalise, launch and oversee Scotland’s next National Action Plan for Human Rights (SNAP).

They are looking for around 25 people aged 16 or over, as follows:

  • People with personal lived experience of human rights issues in Scotland (‘rights holders’) (around 13 people).
  • Senior decision-makers in Scottish public sector bodies (‘duty bearers’) (around 6 people).
  • Senior decision-makers from Scottish civil society organisations (for example, charities, social enterprises, community groups, or trade unions) (around 6 people).

All applicants should be passionate about human rights, and the role of SNAP in strengthening and promoting the protection of people’s rights in Scotland.
