SNAP Leadership Panel gets underway

The SNAP Leadership Panel held its first formal business meeting on 27 April 2022. The Panel has a busy programme of work over the coming months to create and launch Scotland’s next national human rights action plan (SNAP). After SNAP is launched, the Panel’s role is to monitor and oversee it. 

The Panel’s first priority is to review the existing long-list of draft SNAP actions and outcomes. These were produced during the SNAP development phase from 2017 to 2020, and are based on evidence about human rights issues in Scotland and extensive engagement and consultation. The Panel will review, revise and update these actions and outcomes – taking into account the public consultation feedback on a draft SNAP, as well as events that have taken place since 2020, like COVID-19.

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