People should be involved in decisions that affect their rights.
There should be monitoring of how people’s rights are being affected, as well as remedies when things go wrong.
Nobody should be treated unfairly because of their age, gender, ethnicity, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation or gender identity. People who face the biggest barriers to realising their rights should be prioritised when it comes to taking action.
Everyone should understand their rights, and be fully supported to take part in developing policy and practices which affect their lives.
Approaches should be grounded in the legal rights that are set out in domestic and international law. (From the Scottish Human Rights Commission)
