Scotland's place in the world: a manifesto for global solidarity
With the multiple crises of the climate and nature emergencies, the global pandemic and the attacks on multilateralism by the populist right around the world, this is a crucial time to demonstrate an internationalist outlook and to speak up for cooperation and understanding between nations. The concept of policy coherence – understanding the global impact of decisions taken in Scotland and ensuring that one doesn’t undermine the other - has never been more important.
While much of the focus of the Holyrood elections 2021 is inevitably, and understandably, on domestic policy – we call on all parties taking part in the 2021 Holyrood elections to also show their commitment to internationalism and policy coherence by including our suggestions in their election manifestos.
You can read our suggestions in the attached document (link below).
