This includes our contributions to Constitutional Convention discussions of civil marriage equality and blasphemy; our engagement at Oireachtas and Council of Europe level on the furtherance of women’s reproductive rights; reporting to the United Nations  on human rights and the prevention of torture; and our continuing pan-European project on the rights of accused persons and victims of crime.
