Children and Young People’s Rights
4. As set out in the Programme for Government 2017-18, we will undertake a comprehensive audit on the most effective and practical way to further embed the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into legislation, policy and practice, including the option of full incorporation into domestic law.
We intend to publish the outcome of the Audit in spring 2019. To further strengthen children’s rights in Scotland, we announced through the Programme for Government 2018-19 our commitment to incorporate the principles of the UNCRC into domestic law. This is also one of the four actions in our Action Plan.
