  • All News Items- Opening Speech by the Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence Alan Shatter TD, International Conference on Human Rights Education and Training for the Civil and Public Service
    level on these issues While it is important to examine the need for effective corrective measures in crisis situations it is also useful to focus on the positive elements of the process such as the benefit of working together and learning from each other building on our universal shared values the treatment of all member states on an equal basis and the involvement of National Human Rights Institutions and civil society in the process along with the relevant national and EU institutions Mutual trust in the Rule of Law and the effective functioning of justice institutions is vital for economic stability and growth However the focus on economic benefits should not dilute the emphasis on fundamental and universal values and principles as the primary reason for seeking to work together to better protect fundamental rights and promote the Rule of Law within the Union We also considered accusations that there are double standards in how the EU raises human rights issues with countries in our neighbourhood and beyond This question of coherence as between the internal and external dimensions was also to the forefront of our thinking in raising this issue during our Presidency This is an issue on which I am sure many of you here today have strong views and something I will continue to address at an EU level Across the world we need effective legislation and institutions to address issues of human rights abuses and ensure that human rights defenders are protected at all times We must also in a global context not differ in the standards we believe all countries should meet nor selectively pillory the behaviour of some for reasons of political expediency whilst ignoring the human right abuses of others We should also recognise that legislation on its own is not enough We need effective implementation We also need to address extreme forms of intolerance as social phenomena and to put softer interventions in place to promote acceptance of diversity and tolerance of others In this positive example by politicians and others such as you in a position of leadership in public life is of critical importance Events such as this conference will play an important part in highlighting best practice in the influential field of human rights education and training Recently I attended a conference in Lithuania organised by the Lithuanian Presidency and the EU Fundamental Rights Agency which focused on combating hate crime The conference was attended by among others national policy makers practitioners law enforcement and civil society Among the areas discussed was reflecting remembrance in human rights education and training History has taught us that to look forward we must look back Learning from the past understanding causes and effect and raising awareness about these issues can make an important contribution to help to prevent such crimes in the future This is true regardless of the specific national contexts and different experiences across different countries In this way people today can learn to understand the consequence of choices they make for themselves and wider society We must look at the understanding of what shared memory can mean I believe it is important to look into patterns of the past to learn from them to understand the present and to prevent human rights abuses in the future I hope you will get some time to reflect on this issue as part of your exchange over the coming days Since 2008 the Human Rights Commission here in Ireland has undertaken an intensive programme of human rights education and training aimed at Civil and Public servants Over 800 officials across the civil and public service have benefited from this training Tailored training has been provided to our police force local authority staff and prison service This service provided by the Commission has proved valuable across the public sector As many of you are aware we are in the process of merging the Human Rights Commission and the Equality Authority The last lap is proving to be the hardest but the Bill is nearly finalised and I expect to be able to publish it very soon I and my departmental officials are also engaged in ongoing discussions about the 2014 budget and the staffing arrangements for the new body and it is of course of vital importance that it has the resources required to properly fulfil its wide ranging statutory functions Today I want to mention one specific provision in the Bill When it is published the Bill will provide for the introduction of a positive duty on public bodies to conduct their business in a manner that is consistent with individual human rights in reflection of the commitment contained within the current Programme for Government As I have said previously this model of positive duty is not the model found elsewhere The Commission will have an important role in its development and in achieving a key tool which will be meaningful and effective in actively promoting equality and human rights across the public sector The point I want to draw out is that the work already undertaken by the Commission with their Human Rights Education and Training Project across the civil and public service is an excellent example of the soft and persuasive powers which I envisage will be influential in the development of such a public duty Indeed when I presented Ireland s National Report on the UN Universal Periodic Review process and took part in an interactive dialogue with the UN in Geneva I was delighted to accept a recommendation made by Moldova to continue to provide support for human rights education and training domestically in order to enhance awareness and respect for human rights Of course as many of you are aware Ireland has a proud record with regard to the promotion of human rights in our foreign policies Our historical experience informs our approach to human rights and our Constitution through its recognition of fundamental rights guarantees each individual citizen freedom equality and justice Ireland strongly believes that
