Irish Government releases ‘Working Outline of Ireland’s National Plan on Business and Human Rights’

To coincide with Human Rights Day, the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has published its ‘Working Outline of Ireland’s National Plan on Business and Human Rights’. According to Minister Charlie Flanagan:

This day offers us an opportunity to re-state Ireland’s long-standing and deeply-held commitment to the promotion and protection of human rights.

We are doing so in a very concrete way this year as we take the next step in developing a National Plan on Business and Human Rights by publishing today on my Department’s website the working outline of Ireland’s Plan.

We have already benefited from consultation with civil society and business in the process to date, and I know that this will continue as we work towards completing our national plan.

This ‘Working Outline’ seems quite comprehensive at first glance, running to some fifty pages. It is open for consultation until the end of January. Interested parties are invited to submit their views on the working outline by e-mail to the Human Rights Unit of the Department at businesshr@dfa.ie before 29 January 2016.

The Department will post the ‘Working Outline’ on their website later today, and it is also available here.
