The Scottish Human Rights Commission has submitted a report to a review by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child. The report draws attention to the impact of poverty, poor quality housing and inadequate access to mental health services on children’s human rights. Emerging issues are also highlighted including the impact of benefits sanctions on children, and the growing risks to Muslim children from negative media coverage and the effects of counter-terrorism measures.
