Building a New Scotland - an independent Scotland's place in the world: easy read version

This paper sets out the Scottish Government's proposals for an independent Scotland's place in the world.

An independent Scotland as a good global citizen

Scotland is already doing what it can to be a good global citizen. We are working with others to tackle poverty, climate change and threats to human rights and equality.

An independent Scotland could do even more to help the world’s poorest countries including providing financial aid and sharing our expertise.

Scotland would also be able to do more to help solve the environmental crisis. And we could work with other countries to improve global access to vaccines and to fight poverty.

An independent Scotland could be part of international agreements that match our values and interests.
