The 'Your Rights Right Now' Roadtrip

The 'Your Rights. Right Now' UPR campaign launch, 31 January 2011

Ireland sits on the UN Human Rights Council

from January 2013 until December 2015.

Will Ireland's seat on the Council have any impact at home?

We believe that implementation of UN recommendations at home bolsters a country's capacity to promote and protect human rights abroad. 

The ICCL Legacy Project will track progress in seven key impact areas:  
I.   Ratify ICRPD
V.  Gender Recognition
II.  Ratify OPCAT
VI. Recognition of Travellers as an Ethnic Minority
III. Effective NHRI
VII. Reproductive Justice  
IV.   Marriage Equality
