Charter of Rights

The Joint Committee of the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and the Irish Human Rights Commission was mandated by the Belfast Good Friday Agreement 1998 to consider the possibility of 'A Charter of Rights for the island of Ireland'. The Joint Committee presented its advice to the Government of the United Kingdom and the Government of Ireland on a Charter of Rights for the island of Ireland in June 2011.
