Sep 8, 2022 | International News

The Chief Commissioner of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC), Sinead Gibney, recently joined with her counterparts from national human rights institutions across Europe to discuss shared human rights challenges. The event in Warsaw was organised by the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights.

The two-day meeting acted as a forum for National Human Rights Institutions to connect with their counterparts from across the OSCE region to share experiences and best practices and to show solidarity with human rights bodies that are under threat. Nusha Yonkova from the IHREC’s Anti-Human Trafficking Unit, also met Finland’s Non-Discrimination Ombudsman Kristina Stenman to discuss collaboration across human trafficking reporting, research and work within the EU network of national rapporteurs.
