Council Of Europe Committee endorses need for reform of race equality laws







Writing in her latest blog article, Eileen Lavery, Head of Policy, said:

"The recent Opinion from the Advisory Committee of the Council of Europe Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (FCNM), published on 9 March this year, is important for Northern Ireland because it sets out specific actions that the Northern Ireland Executive should be taking in order to meet its commitments under the Convention.

The Commission’s three racial equality policy priorities – law reform, specific commitments to tackle racism and address key inequalities and ethnic monitoring – have been reflected, in whole or in part, in a new Council of Europe document on progress made by the central and devolved governments of the UK towards racial equality."
