On 9th December 2015, Scottish Human Rights Commission held an “Innovation Day” Conference at Dynamic Earth. We have published this paper comprising of the four short speeches delivered at the panel breakout session on the day. The speeches, in turn, were delivered by: Peter Peacock of Community Land Scotland; Megan MacInnes of Global Witness; Dr Kirsteen Shields of Dundee University; and Christopher Nicholson of the Scottish Tenant Farmers Association.
The speeches give short perspectives on the difference Human Rights thinking has been making to land reform policy debate and to law in Scotland currently, and taking a slightly forward look on what more is to be done.
There is also a position from Scottish Land and Estates who were invited to participate but unable to attend the event.
