Launch of Community Platform Submission to UN CESCR

Thursday, February 08, 2024

The Platform submission provides an important alternative to the Irish State perspective. It draws on the collective input of 31 national organisations representing a wide range of groups experiencing poverty, social exclusion and inequality. This includes disabled people, Travellers and Roma, people experiencing homelessness, women, lone parents, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, people who are unemployed, people in the prison system, and rural communities.

The Community Platform Submission will be launched by Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission Member Noeline Blackwell. The submission’s author, Audry Deane, will present an overview of its priority themes, insights, proposals and recommendations.

A panel of Community Platform members will discuss the submission’s key issues and proposals, providing useful insights into what must change in order to improve the lives of people whose economic, social and cultural rights are not respected as they should be.

Where: This is a hybrid event with the option to attend in person or online (please select the relevant ticket type).

Registration and tea/coffee will start at 1:30pm. The launch will start at 2pm sharp.
