Dr Amanda Cahill-Ripley Briefing to the Northern Ireland Assembly Ad Hoc Committee on a Bill of Rights
Dr Amanda Cahill-Ripley, Senior Lecturer in Law at the School of Law and Social Justice, has submitted Written Evidence to Northern Ireland Assembly Ad Hoc Committee on A Bill of Rights, on Human Rights and Peacebuilding, which has now been published.
Dr Cahill-Ripley’s briefing provides an introduction to the subject of human rights and peacebuilding and outlines the rationale for the use of human rights, in particular, Economic, Social and Cultural Rights for peacebuilding.
Further it sets out the case for the inclusion of ESCRs within a Bill of Rights (BoR) for Northern Ireland with the objective of building a sustainable, peaceful and inclusive society. It considers especially the need to engage all sections of society within Northern Ireland, including those communities who have traditionally been wary of human rights. It concludes with a number of recommendations for consideration by the Committee.
