Juliet Harris - Director
As Director of Together (Scottish Alliance for Children’s Rights), Juliet leads the organisation in promoting and monitoring the implementation of Scotland’s international human rights obligations to children and young people, including the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). She works with Together's membership of over 380 children's organisations and professionals to produce an annual State of Children's Rights report, liaises with government and parliamentarians to further children's rights in policy and practice, and reports on progress to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child. She sits on the Taskforce for the UN Committee’s Day of General Discussion on Children as Human Rights Defenders, as well as on a number of advisory groups with the Scottish Government and Scottish Human Rights Commission. She is Vice Chair of the Children’s Parliament and Chair of the Rights of the Child UK Coalition. Juliet's previous experience includes six years tackling the destitution and poverty of refugees and asylum seekers, alongside several roles working in the field of health and homelessness. Juliet has an LLM in International Human Rights Law and regularly lectures at the University of Edinburgh on children’s human rights law and policy.
