Glasgow Human Rights Network Roundtable

Poverty is a Human Rights violation: perspectives and responses from Scotland

 

October 17th is the United Nations International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. In light of the recent damning statement from the UN Special Rapporteur on Housing regarding the Human Rights violations resulting from the ‘Bedroom tax’ and welfare reform in the UK, the Glasgow Human Rights Network invites you to join us for a Roundtable Discussion highlighting Poverty as a Human Rights Violation in the UK and Scotland’s response to this.

Organiser

Glasgow Human Rights Network (GHRN)

The Glasgow Human Rights Network aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, members of civil society organisations and policymakers who address human rights issues.

The University of Glasgow has a wide range of expertise on a variety of human rights issues, and conducts both research and teaching in this area, as do other universities in Scotland. The City of Glasgow, and Scotland more widely, also has many nongovernmental organisations involved in human rights issues. And Scotland constitutes a unique setting within the UK for addressing human rights issues within the context of devolution.

The aims of the network are to:

  • To be an internationally recognised network for human rights
  • To facilitate interdisciplinary research collaboration
  • To support interdisciplinary teaching in human rights, particularly at the postgraduate level
  • To support knowledge exchange between practitioners and researchers
  • To provide a public forum for lectures, debates, and other activities
