This Global Affairs Framework sets out the values and principles underpinning the Scottish Government’s international work and the basis on which the Scottish Government will prioritise its international activity.
Our international work seeks to mirror our domestic priorities and values, whether by empowering women and girls through our international development efforts, connecting a global community of people with an affinity to Scotland who will help to raise the country’s international reputation or contributing to the international body of expertise in how to address child poverty.
Whilst we have established programmes and initiatives in these and many other areas, the contribution that Scotland could make, and the benefits it could receive, would be significantly enhanced with the powers of independence rather than devolution.
The Scottish Government’s prospectus for enhanced international relations as an independent state will be published in the run-up to the independence referendum.
