An informal roundtable took place with Deputy UN Higher Commissioner for Human Rights, Kate Gilmore this week at Pavee Point.  This was a great opportunity to engage with civil society during a short visit to Ireland.

Commissioner Gilmore heard from a variety of organisations working in the area of women and children’s rights as well as anti-racism organisation and development organisations.

Commissioner Gilmore has a long history of commitment to and work on women’s issues both in the UN and various NGOs.
