About the Event
This webinar will provide a discussion on the Article 2 commitment and the Dedicated Mechanism.
Under the EU/UK Withdrawal Agreement, the UK has committed in Article 2 of the Northern Ireland Protocol to ensuring that certain equality and human rights in Northern Ireland will continue to be protected after Brexit. The UK government created a “Dedicated Mechanism” comprising of the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland and the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission. This webinar will provide an overview of the Article 2 commitment and the Dedicated Mechanism.
The talk will be jointly given by Éilis Haughey, Head of Services, Dedicated Mechanism at the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and Roisin Mallon, Director, Dedicated Mechanism Unit, Equality Commission for Northern Ireland.
At the end of the webinar, we will host a Q&A session, where Éilis and Roisin will take questions from attendees.
Whilst there will be a live Q&A function during the webinar, we would welcome questions in advance. Please email any questions by midday on 15th June 2021 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further information on the Dedicated Mechanism Unit is available here.
