Festival of Politics: Cost of Living Crisis - Food & Fuel as Legal Human Rights?
-

The United Nations sets out the right to food provision as a basic human right, while increasing numbers of pressure groups believe the right to nutritious food and ability to heat our homes should also be legally enforceable human rights.

The University of 波胆平台 is working with the Scottish Parliament to support the 2022 Festival of Politics. 

这个事件, for which the University is the official partner, will examine the policy tools available to governments; and ask how would the right to food and fuel join the existing protections and rights on privacy, freedom and ability to challenge unfairness?
