Workshop on International Human Rights Instruments

Thanks to everyone who attended our workshop on how effective engagement with the UN and the Council of Europe might advance Traveller and Roma rights.

It was great to hear people with direct experience of engagement at this level give the benefit of their experience. There were plenty of questions and answers.

The workshop covered a number of UN conventions and the Universal Periodic Review with Megan Berry, Mary Brigid Collins, Jenny Liston, and Sally Anne Corcoran and Geraldine McDonnell.

Council of Europe instruments that were covered were the Framework Convention on National Minorities, European Commission on Racism and Intolerance and the the Council of Europe and women’s rights.
