What’s the Score with Ireland’s Human Rights Record?

Join Your Rights Right Now for Live Results from GenevaLast October, the Government received 126 recommendations to improve its human rights record from the United Nations, after Ireland’s first-ever Universal Periodic Review (UPR).

Minister Alan Shatter accepted 62 recommendations on the spot, rejected 15 and agreed to consider another 49.

Five months later, what’s the score?

Your Rights Right Now, Ireland’s civil society UPR campaign, invites you to join us in Liberty Hall for live coverage of Ireland’s next appearance before the United Nations Human Rights Council, at which the Government will reveal just how many of the 49 outstanding recommendations it will accept.

Date: Thursday 15th March 2012
Time: 10.30 am–12.30 pm
Place: Connolly Room, Liberty Hall, Dublin 1 (Entrance via Liberty Hall Theatre)

Participants are welcome to drop in at any time between 10.30 and 12.30 to join members of the Your Rights Right Now campaign and watch our live feed from the UN in Geneva.  Scorecards will be provided to help you keep track of the Government’s progress and we will be live tweeting the results as they come in.
