  • All News Items- Speech by Minister Curran for the launch of the European Week Against Racism, 11 March 2010, European Union House, Dawson Street, Dublin 2.
    However one racially motivated incident is one too many and we should never become complacent in this regard We are now facing many new challenges during this economic downturn Increasing numbers on the unemployment register and significant cuts in public expenditure have impacted upon everybody living here We must be clear and unequivocal that racism has no place in our society and we must be very careful not to scapegoat migrants Oversimplified discourses and unfounded accusations about immigrants merely serve to create separation and division in our society and to deny the enrichment which immigration has brought to our daily lives One of our greatest challenges is to use our available resources to achieve the best and most efficient outcomes for all members of society including migrants who have made a significant economic social and cultural contribution to this country over the last number of years In recognition of the importance of tackling the issue of racism a number of Government sponsored initiatives have been undertaken in recent times For example The enactment of our Equality legislation and the establishment of the Equality Authority and the Equality Tribunal The launch of the National Action Plan Against Racism in 2005 and The establishment of my Office in 2007 to develop drive and co ordinate Integration policy across Government Departments I want to take this opportunity to reaffirm that this Government maintains our commitment not only to tackling racism but also to developing and promoting a more diverse inclusive and integrated society The National Action Plan Against Racism 2005 2008 was designed to provide strategic direction towards the achievement of a more intercultural inclusive society in Ireland The Plan was integration driven and under the Plan support was provided towards the development of a number of national and local strategies promoting greater integration in our workplaces in the Garda Síochána the health service in our education system in the arts and sports sectors and within our local authorities Many of the initiatives which were instigated through the National Action Plan Against Racism continue to be developed and progressed through the support and work of my Office For example the HSE Intercultural Health Strategy continues to be rolled out to facilitate the delivery of healthcare in an inclusive respectful and fair way to minority communities The Intercultural Education Strategy will be launched in the coming months following a very lengthy research and consultation process My Office in conjunction with the Equality Authority and the social partners is also involved in implementing a Workplace Diversity Initiative as part of the Action Strategy for Integrated Workplaces This initiative involves providing practical supports in dealing with the challenges of managing workplace diversity More detailed information on what the initiative entails is available on my Office s website www integration ie I do not want to in any way downplay the importance of Central Government Departments in the area of anti racism and integration Individual departments have a responsibility in terms of the provision of services appropriate
