Academic presented arguments in favour of incorporating the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into Scottish Law

On Friday, 10th February, Dr Kasey McCall-Smith presented arguments in favour of incorporating the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into Scottish law at the Scottish Universities Insight Institute seminar.

The seminar, which was entitled 'The UNCRC in Law', was one in a series of four one-day interdisciplinary and corss-sector seminars seeking to improve the implementation and monitoring of the UNCRC in Scotland. Each session is designed to examine the UNCRC from the perspectives of law, practice, policy and next steps for implementation.

The seminar series is being held in partnership with Together, the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships at the University at the University of Edinburgh, and the Centre for Welbeing and Protection at the University of Stirling. 

More information may be found on Together's website, where presentations, speaker blogs, a briefing and a video are available. Dr McCall-Smith is also scheduled to speak at the fourth seminar in June.
