Working Paper

Alongside the Call for Evidence a working paper was published which brought together evidence from a range of publicly-available sources setting out where Scotland stands in relation to welfare and associated matters in comparison to other European nations and the wider Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).


The group has engaged fully with a range of parties interested in the future of the benefits system in Scotland and to encourage discussion events and forums.
