“National and International Accountability for Human Rights”
delivered by Rosalind McKenna (Amnesty International)
Wednesday 20 November 2013
ALL WELCOME TO ATTEND
We are extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to hear from Rosalind McKenna from Amnesty International. This seminar will examine efforts to increase the level of recognition and legal protection of human rights, in particular, economic, social and cultural rights, in Ireland. Rosalind will give an overview of the nature and status of these rights, avenues for greater protection and some of the recent efforts to hold the Government to account for the vindication of human rights at the national and international level, including the campaign to have better protection of rights recognised in the Constitution.
About the speaker:
Rosalind McKenna is Team Coordinator of Amnesty International Ireland’s programme on economic, social and cultural (ESC) rights. As part of Amnesty International’s global work on ESC rights Rosalind currently leads work on making these rights legally enforceable at the national and international level. She is responsible for engagement with the UN and Council of Europe bodies in connection with current enforcement mechanisms and leads Amnesty’s campaign for constitutional recognition of ESC rights in Ireland.
The Constitutional Convention in Limerick
The Constitutional Convention has recently announced a visit to Limerick on 27 November to discuss constitutional reform with citizens in the region. This seminar will offer an opportunity to hear about Amnesty’s engagement with the Convention on the issue of human rights in advance of this regional meeting.
