Following the celebration of Human Rights Day (10 Dec) and with the continued implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), the Scottish Human Rights Commission discuss the promotion and protection of the human rights of young people, not just in policy but in practice in this months opinion piece. Elsewhere throughout the magazine we hear some positive stories about a new community initiative demonstrating positive outcomes for young people, highlights from the fourth national Hearing of the European Agency for Special Needs and Inclusive Education, and how a new venture is offering youngsters with little or no qualifications the chance to gain real-life work experience.
