Report for public authorities on implementing their Section 75 duties

Report for public authorities on implementing their Section 75 duties
17/07/2018
Acting on the evidence of public authority practices








Section 75The Equality Commission’s report 'Acting on the evidence of public authority practices' identifies a number of issues which it believes are fundamental to the effective implementation of the Section 75 duties by public authorities and presents recommendations which will help them to fulfil their statutory equality and good relations duties.

It is clear that cultural and institutional change is required to fully embed the legislative requirements, and to ensure a focus on the impacts and consequences of policies and decisions on the lives of people in Northern Ireland.

We have highlighted leadership, in particular, as core to the effective delivery of the statutory equality and good relations duties.  We are fully committed to engaging with leaders across the public sector to encourage renewed focus on such delivery.
