Draft SNAP Actions under review

The SNAP Leadership Panel is currently in the process of reviewing and revising the draft Actions that will be in Scotland’s next National Human Rights Action Plan (SNAP).

After four years’ work from 2017 to 2020, SNAP’s development was severely hampered by COVID-19.

Since being appointed in March 2022, members of the Leadership Panel have been through an intensive induction programme and developed a methodology to help their work to review, revise, finalise and launch SNAP.

The Panel have an existing long-list of draft SNAP Actions to review and revise. These come from learning from the first SNAP, extensive research and engagement carried out during the 2017-2020 development phase, and feedback to a public consultation on a draft SNAP published in 2019.

The Panel will also identify new Actions – to fill identified gaps, and to take into account what’s changed and new in the national and international context since 2020. For example, the impact of COVID-19 and recovery from the pandemic, and plans to incorporate a raft of UN human rights treaties and rights into domestic law.

We’ll continue to provide more information about the Panel’s work as it progresses.
