 Migrant Voice - Human Rights Consortium Scotland releases new report


Human Rights Consortium Scotland has published a new report calling for migrants’ rights to be protected under the new Scottish Human Rights Bill. 

Migrant Voice is one of the partners of Human Rights Consortium Scotland and has been working to protect migrants’ rights alongside PKAVS, Scottish Refugee Council, Forth Valley Migrant Support Network, JustRight Scotland, Amnesty Scotland, Citizens Rights Project and BEMIS.

The report contains nine key recommendations, including stating that government provisions relating to economic and social rights should be available to all regardless of immigration status. This includes benefits, further education, and homelessness support. 

The publication also calls for a wide diversity of migrant rights-holders and migrant-related civil society organisations to be directly involved in the development of the Bill and its recommendations.

Nazek Ramadan, Director of Migrant Voice, said: “We call on the Scottish Government to adhere to the recommendations in this new report as it develops the new Scottish Human Rights Bill.

“It is vital to ensure migrants’ rights are enshrined under this legislation, and that the protections in this Bill apply to everyone in Scotland, regardless of immigration status.”
