This chapter reviews the continuing peculiarities of the human rights regime in Scotland. These include: the strange emerging relationship between the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Scotland Act 1998, involving considerable technicalities that few parliamentarians can understand; the different and very limited character and potential contribution of ‘dialogue’ in devolved conditions; and the ‘threat’ of a ‘UK Bill of Rights’ fitting ill with a devolved jurisdiction.

Keywords: Scotland Act; devolution; dialogue; Britishness; Joint Committee on Human Rights; human rights regime
