In conjunction with the Human Rights Consortium and the North West Community Network

Community Dialogue, in conjunction with the Human Rights Consortium and the North West Community Network, organised a dedicated dialogue session aimed at driving participation in the Assembly survey on a Bill of Human Rights.

The event focused on outreach and engagement in order to get the views of participants, listening to what they think and taking on board how they feel about the creation of a Bill of Rights in Northern Ireland.

Issues addressed included:

  • Does everyone in Northern Ireland have the same rights?
  • Do people need more protection in certain areas?
  • Where do values relate to the issue of human rights?
  • What has been the impact of Covid on human rights?

Following this event, a meeting was organised with Les Allamby, the Human Rights Commissioner for Northern Ireland, to discuss the findings from the consultations. A joint report was also submitted to the Assembly Committee.
