Hear from leaders across the housing and human rights sector about the reality of making housing a human right

We know the next Scottish Government is likely to legislate so that human rights are incorporated in Scots law. But what does that mean for the housing sector and to what extend is our sector delivering on the human rights of tenants and communities?

Why attend?

The Scottish Government is likely to introduce new legislation incorporating economic, social and cultural rights into Scots law. But what does this mean in practice? And how ready is the sector for the changes coming?

What will you learn?

  • What progress is being made incorporating economic, cultural and social rights into Scots law
  • What the impact may be for the housing sector
  • How landlords can better consider human rights when delivering their services

Who should get involved?

The incorporation of human rights into Scots law will potentially be one of the most significant undertaking of the Scottish Parliament conferring new right to citizens and new responsibilities on Scotland’s social sector and private sector landlords.

This session should be of interest to anyone working in housing but will be of particular interest to senior managers, directors and strategic leaders in Scotland.
