Incorporation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

12 August 2019 - Incorporation offers an opportunity to place children's rights on the strongest possible footing. Our submission calls for the incorporation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, to specifically strengthen the rights of vision impaired and other disabled children. We support the justification for direct incorporation set out by the Children and Young People's Commissioner and Together (Scottish Alliance for Children's Rights). While UNCRC rights can be interpreted and applied according to the domestic context, the rights themselves must be kept universal.
