Morrison F, McCormack M & Tisdall K (2020) Response to call for views on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill. Scottish Parliament.

Abstract
Our submission is based on our collective academic and policy work on children’s human rights. We draw particularly on two recent foci: the Children (Scotland) Bill’s passage through Parliament and the efforts made to ensure that Bill was compliant with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) (1); and the independent Children’s Rights Impact Assessment undertaken for the children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland, on COVID-19 related policies (2) .
